Our year 10 gifted and more able students spent the morning of Thursday November 4th on a project to design the perfect school for the twenty-first century. Presented with a brief by organisers Mr Millican, Mr Thompson, and Ms Woolley, they had to design both the physical infrastructure of their new school and the curriculum the students would follow.
All of this had to be costed to ensure that it met a very tight budget. There were some very imaginative suggestions, with environmental education being at the heart of many of the proposals.
At the end of the session, the teams had to present their findings to the audience, and two winning teams were chosen. This was an exceptionally difficult task since the quality of each submission was so high. All of the students deserve congratulation for solving something as challenging as this and finding and presenting a solution in just two hours.
