The middle school students, with the help of their faculty advisors, researched and submitted a proposal to the Guinness Book of World Records in March to attempt to break the record held by a group in Shiga, Japan, with 188 hide-and-seek participants. The proposal was approved by Guinness Book of World Records on April 18.
The attempt took place on May 6 on the three-acre soccer fields adjacent to the Roswell school. The record-breaking game, which lasted about an hour, included Roswell City Council and Rotary Club representatives as witnesses to the event.
The new record is noted on the Guinness World Records website at: www.guinnessworldrecords.com/records/largest-game-of-hide-and-seek.
Queen of Angels School, led by Dr. Kathy Wood, is an archdiocesan Catholic school serving kindergarten through eighth grades located at 11340 Woodstock Road, Roswell. More information about the school is available at www.qaschool.org.
