The challenge was to protect a raw egg sufficiently to prevent it from breaking when dropped off the highest point of St Mary’s Church tower. Mr Thomas, the class teacher, was amazed when all the eggs survived unbroken.

Governors who attended the event were also impressed by the care and attention the children had put into protecting their eggs, many of which were given names.
