Young Eco Engineers 2017

3rd June 2017
On Saturday 3rd June 2017, Archie and Brooke from St James' and Lucy and Mollie from Allhallows took to the tracks to race their Go-Karts in the 'Young Eco Engineers Competition'.  The race was held at Detling showground and saw the children race against 15 other local primary schools.
Over the past couple of months, pupils in year 6 have been constructing their own battery powered go-karts.  This team effort almost lead to victory!  With St James competing in the finals in heat 2 and Allhallows in heat 3.  
The children had a fantastic time and are looking forward to sharing their experiences with the wider school this week.
Our thanks go to the parents of these children who helped support the running of the event.  A special thanks to Mr Read, who pushed over 25 go-karts across the start line!
