Several of our Year 7 students won an Enterprise competition in school, which led them to represent All Saints at an Inspirations event organised by NYBEP (North Yorkshire Business and Education Partnership Ltd) at the Elvington Air Museum.
The students were split into two groups, whose winning ideas were products to help the environment, one using kinetic energy to charge mobile phones and the other to be able to turn home electrical items on and off using a mobile phone. The judges thought that both of these ideas were excellent and after deliberation decided to award the winning trophy and £100 to both groups.
It was a really fun day, with the opportunity to ride 5-man bikes, go-carts and to go into the York University ‘Cosmophere’ to learn about Astrology.
We also saw Private Dan Burnikell, an ex-student of All Saints. Dan is now working for the Queen’s Own Yeomanry in the ‘Regimental Recruit Mentoring Training Team’ based at Fulford Barracks.
