“The FUSE Cup was a brilliant way for our kids to learn about online etiquette and digital well-being. Our kids enjoyed every second of the FUSE Cup and realised that winning isn’t everything, but it’s the process and the enjoyment of the journey that counts.  ​It was definitely a unique experience for some of our students to play against kids from other countries. Well done on a super successful Esports competition. Thanks for having us take part”
