The College hosted the Somerset finals of F1 in Schools - Jaguar Primary School Challenge at the Leisure Centre this week.A number of different teams from across the county competed to win the coveted Jaguar Trophy.  Teams of Year 4 and 5 students have spent the last 8 months designing and building their own ‘Formula 1’ car which they built from cardboard.   The little cars shot across the track at great speed, much to the delight of competitors and spectators alike.  The students also had to create a display and present their ideas to a panel of judges from Jaguar and the Rotary Club.  There were some great presentations including singing, dancing and poetry to compliment the story of the design journey. 

The final students had to use all their skills to complete a design and make challenge on the day – with some fantastic results.  Every team managed to win a prize however, the winning team was ‘Furious Four’ from Whitchurch Primary School.  They were presented with their prizes by Gavin Ball, Principal at the College and David Barnard, Chairman of Jaguar F1 in Schools.

A huge thank you to everybody involved in the planning and preparation of such a great event, and the continued support of the Rotary Club, who always have such enthusiasm for College events. We wish the winners every success in the National Finals in Coventry on 23 June.
