BAYSWATER SCHOOL YOU ROCK! WELL DONE ON JOINING THE 1 MILLION CLUB!
Bayswater is a decile 9 school based on The North Shore of Auckland with a school roll of just over 200 students. Reaching the 1 million club is an incredible feat considering the smaller number of students.
Bayswater students are very passionate about their Skoolbo, leading the charge last December with our World Cup challenge and incredibly, Room 5 topped the chart for the class that answered the most questions over the challenge time.
With 29 Super Champs, those individual students answering over 10,000 questions, 14,347 personal bests and a school average improvement rate of over 20%, it’s easy to see how Bayswater reached this amazing milestone.
Awesome job Bayswater, keep up that fantastic playing.
GO BAYSWATER SCHOOL GO!
