Alaina, Najmudin, Noora, Fatima and Aaliya were victorious in the regional heats of Deloitte’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) Predictions Schools Challenge back in February, earning their place in the grand final (and final three).

Their project, ‘teachAfrica’, proposed ultra-fast connectivity to establish an interactive and mobile school network in Sierra Leone and other poor and remote areas around the world. The girls presented their project proposal in the Deloitte Auditorium with confidence and real passion. They finished off as overall runners up in what was a very challenging, national competition.

Mrs J. Lomax, Head of Sixth Form (Sep 2018 – Aug 2020), said:

The girls were a real credit to themselves and the school. Their mentors from Deloitte, Mr Petty and Mr Fadil, were immensely proud of the students and acknowledged the journey they have been on.

At the end of the presentations Deloitte arranged for the students to have a ride on the London Eye, which rounded off a fantastic day for the students.
