Bikeability

Bikeability1Bikeability taking place once again. An amazing uptake this year 35 students from year 7 & 8, all working towards level 2 & 3. This year students are also having a bike maintenance session so they can all be much more independent and look after their bike and keep safe. It was a pleasure to join them on their ride out towards Lydbury and back via Colebatch.
Congratulations to all the students who have taken part in this course which is run by an amazing team from Shropshire council.

International Women In Engineering Day

 

 FemalesinEngineeringDay
 
"CCBC celebrated International Women in Engineering Day last week by inviting in Mrs Verity Doust, Project Manger of High Speed 2 in Birmingham. Mrs Dousts main objective was to trigger an interest in a career in engineering, particularly for females where the national average for women in engineering positions is below 11%. The mission was indeed accomplished! The interest post speech was over 75%! Many thanks to Mrs Doust for giving up her time to motivate and inspire others. "

The Great ‘Great Escape’

 TheGreatEscape

On Monday 12th June, all our Year 7s went to the newly relocated Great Escape for a day of outward bound challenges. The difference with this particular visit was that it also involved all our Year 6 pupils from local primary schools, about 140 young people in total. The weather was kind, albeit a bit blustery and cool, and spirits were high. After an interesting journey up the single track, courtesy of M&J, no time was wasted forming mixed-aged teams and getting stuck into the activities. Whether they were trying to build block towers using a human crane, or attempting to cross shark infested waters using only barrels and boards, or crate-stacking, or one of the other many activities, all of them required communication, ideas and teamwork. I am not sure the relay at the end was the highlight of the day, but everybody went home tired and satisfied.

The event was laid on by our Learning Trust (and free of charge to students), and we need to thank Juliet Morgan in particular for pulling the event together. Thanks also to Mark at Great Escape and his staff for interacting so well with the students. It was a great day.
