The European School of Brussels III has broken the existing world record (former 564) for an uninterrupted chain of people, holding hands, stepping through rings. Seven rings were used, symbolising the seven language sections of the school. The new world record was established during the school’s annual Springfest on April 30, from 11:00 to 12:00, on the school grounds. The new record number set was 829, and pupils from the maternel, primary and secondary sections as well as members of staff and management all took part. The students thought up the idea and organised it themselves, demonstrating a sense of togetherness and identity in the school – a source of great pride. The event was carried out in accordance with the Guinness Book of Records and will be recorded by them as a record.
