Our first ever Family STEM night proved to be a great success with a great turn out of Yr8 and Yr9 families.
The educational part of the evening was not lost with an emphasis on STEM related career opportunities locally and the significance of subject choices as students progress through school being highlighted.
That said, I have never experienced so much fun with lego in one room amongst both adults and pupils with a competitive streak amongst families at the fore! Our thanks to STEM Aware for hosting the event.
Stuart Crutchley, PSNI Road Safety branch, delivered a presentation to our Year 13 pupils outlining the importance of driving safely.A combination of videos, facts related to careless driving, firsthand accounts of accidents and hard hitting questions helped to provide Year 13 with practical advice for their future driving.
A startling message to all of our young drivers is that 95+% of crashes where someone is killed or seriously injured are due to human error.Sincere thanks to Stuart for facilitating this extremely beneficial presentation
