Local children faced an exciting range of challenges created by Loughborough College when they arrived on campus recently.
Pupils from St Winefride’s Primary School in Shepshed were invited into the Sixth Form College science laboratories to tackle taste bud experiments and then got to grips with shapes and numbers and reading and writing skills in the hope of being declared winner at the end of the day’s activities.
“We were delighted to welcome St Winefride’s for a day of challenges designed by our Science, English and Maths teams and led by staff as well as our Sixth Form students.
“It was a fantastic opportunity for pupils to stretch themselves using facilities, like Loughborough College’s new science labs and state of the art classrooms, which they would not normally have access to.
“The 33 young students who took part also benefited from the chance to build their confidence and skills as they move towards secondary school.
“Everyone had a great time and were thrilled to receive certificates marking their achievements at the end of the day,” said Chris Stainsby, Head of the Sixth Form College.
