Team G.R.O.W.T.H. are highly commended for their projects at national finals in London.
Our Big Idea Regional Finalist winners, team G.R.O.W.T.H. from Year 8 took part in the Big Ideas National Finals at the Palace of Westminster on the 22nd June, competing with schools from all over the UK. Big Ideas is a STEM and sustainability programme encouraging students to solve the planet’s current issues using innovative and novel solutions.
The team braved the train system and arrived in London in time for a tour of the Houses of Parliament, where they got a fascinating insight into the history of our Parliament and the workings of the government today. Later in the day the Team G.R.O.W.T.H. did an excellent presentation of their project to the team of judges, highlighting their amazing project on student mental health, that is becoming a reality within school over the next few weeks.
Team G.R.O.W.T.H. received a highly commended for their projects and should be extremely proud of all they have achieved. Well done to all three students.
