Members of the Year 5 and 6 STEM Club recently entered their designs for the national Primary Engineer Leaders Award. Over 37,000 children entered the competition with 1,934 entries from London alone. We are delighted to report that four of our pupils achieved distinction in this competition meaning that their designs were in the top one per cent of all entries received:
Zuzanna was also one of only two Year 6 award winners for the whole of London. She attended an awards ceremony at Kingston University on Friday 6th July with Olaf (one of our Assistant Head Teachers) and her family who were rightly very proud of her! Her design (along with the designs of our other three distinction pupils) was displayed at the university and was viewed by hundreds of visitors.
We are delighted that the designs of four of our children caught the imagination of the distinguished panel of judges from Kingston University and its sponsors. Our thanks to Luke (one of our Year Group Leaders) for supporting the children in producing and refining their designs. Perhaps in the future some of our pupils may design inventions that will change the lives of millions of people!!
