Silver CREST Award Success

Last year, KEHS offered Engineering as an enrichment option in the Lower Fifth. This entailed the students working on a project of their own choice in order to enter it for a CREST award, which is the only nationally recognised accreditation scheme for STEM project work. It was very much an independent piece of work; the students worked at their own pace, and were only given help when they asked, or it was required for health and safety reasons. I am delighted to report that all five students successfully gained a Silver CREST award for their projects. Congratulations to Laura who completed a project entitled, ‘Investigating the structure of a carousel’, Naila for ‘Model of a design and technology block’, Mina for ‘Designing a man powered flying device’, Michelle for ‘Designing a balcony for the school hall’ and Katrina for ‘Building a remote control aeroplane’. They should be very proud of their achievement, as it was entirely down to their own efforts!

Following the snow this weekend, the site has been cleared and will be gritted in the morning, but please wear sensible footwear and take care when walking around the site.
