XPO- Logistic Challenge Success

On Thursday 8th November Kirk Balk Academy took six year 7 students to the ASOS building in Barnsley for the XPO logistics challenge. We competed against 10 other schools across South Yorkshire, delivering a news report to a panel of 12 judges. The news report consisted of how we would transport a large quantity of sunglasses from China to Barnsley then Barnsley to Australia. Our students created an amazing news report with two modern, cheap methods of this transportation.

Our students were brilliant throughout the day and the judges were very complimentary of how well behaved, professional and creative Kirk Balk were.

The day was extremely successful, we went on to win the competition! The students won the Academy a brand new drone, which departments will be able to hire out and use.


Well done to all students involved.
