Split into six unique modules, middle school pupils from Gislesham, Beccles, Bungay, Halesworth, Worlingham and St Felix School at Southwold have been given the chance to work together in a bid to show the benefits of each subject and future opportunities available.
Strategic Thinking is the second module, focusing the ability to apply it in all areas of learning.

Part two of the project takes place on Tuesday at Bungay Middle School, when 16 pupils from each school will learn the art of playing GO, the ancient Chinese strategic game, with the help of Zen Machine, a company specialising in the teaching of the game, nationally and internationally.
Back at their own schools, the pupils will be asked to start a Go-Club and teach other pupils the rules of the game.
The final event in this project is planned for Tuesday, March 3, again at Bungay Middle School when the five best Go players per school battle it out for the title Go-Player of the Year.
