A unique Benenden School edition of Monopoly has been produced and gone on sale thanks to the efforts of two students.
The School has partnered with Monopoly manufacturer Winning Moves to produce an official special edition of the much-loved family board game.
Gone are the traditional streets such as the Strand, Whitechapel and Mayfair; instead players can buy iconic locations around Benenden School, including the Science Centre, Cloisters or the new All-Weather Pitch.
The traditional Stations have been replaced by the transport we are familiar with at Benenden, including scooters and the School bus. Instead of Community Chest and Chance cards, you pick up Pink Slips or Blue Slips – part of the School’s reward and sanctions system – and suffer the consequences, whether it’s a present in Prayers for your birthday or a detention for a misdemeanour!
The exciting edition is all thanks to two Sixth Form students at Benenden: Isabella Cassidy and Tele Mobereola (pictured below). The girls came up with the idea as a wonderful way of marking their time at Benenden before they left after their A Levels.
