Walker Newsletter Term 4 Week 8

Roll up! Roll up! It’s Walker Competition Time!

We thought it would be a great idea to finish up the year with a Walker competition in the form of a riddle! The riddle below describes a geographical feature, somewhere in the world. If you solve the riddle, you will win a mystery prize. In order to qualify, you must be a Rivendell student from any program other than Walker. You can give your guesses to your class teacher. The winner will be announced in next week’s newsletter! The first correct response submitted will be the winner, there is only one prize.
