Congratulations to Anna Neal (8A) and Leona Rose Quigley (8A), who were named winners of the European Systems Safety Society Schools Competition. The competition involved preparing a presentation that described a hazardous scenario and suggested a scientific solution to solve the problem. The competition was open to all schools across the UK, which makes the girls’ achievement very impressive.
For winning the competition, Anna and Leona Rose have won two 3D printers for the school (worth over £1000 each) and Amazon vouchers for themselves.
A second team of Erin Rice, Jessica Carlisle and Caragh Crane were also commended for their entry and have been awarded Amazon vouchers.
The 3D printers will be a great addition to the STEM subject’s resources, in particular the Technology & Design department. It will enable pupils to develop 3D models of the designs they create using Computer Aided Design (CAD), which will be a major advantage for our GCSE and A-Level pupils.
Well done girls!
