Right, we thought it was about time we got round to posting some of the things off our 101 Challenge that we have completed.
So to start:
4 – Get involved with a world record attempt
About a year ago, our school decided to attempt the world record for the tallest cookie tower. As prefects, some of us were allowed to help out by letting children in and out of the room to help build it. I spent pretty much the whole day tiptoeing around because I was so worried I would fall over onto the tower and knock it all over. Seriously, they had teachers standing around the tower to make sure people did go anywhere near it like bouncers. They took it VERY seriously. Though a lot of us did end up stealing biscuits at the end of the day because we had about 10 boxes left over so there were some perks. I stayed there all day (no, not to avoid lessons…) and when the photographer for the newspaper turned up I was one of the only ones that had been there the whole time, so they chose me to be in the photo. Which you can see below:
The original cookie tower record was set by the Girl Scouts of Nassau County in America and measured 6 ft 1/8 in tall. However, we did achieve the world record as our cookie tower stood at 6ft 2inches.
