Our project this year for year eight pupils in the Borough was to devise a project in which your school could become involved with the local community. Show how the community, your school and the pupils would benefit from this project.
We felt that this well represented the ideals of the Society and we gave the schools eighteen months to work on it, expecting to receive some really interesting entries.
Unfortunately, the results were most disappointing with the poorest response since we first started a project for the schools. In the event we did receive one entry worthy of recognition and an award was made to pupils from St. John Fisher Catholic College for their project on recycling and care of the environment.
We need to consider how we should proceed with this avenue of the Society’s activity in the future and may go back to our original very successful essay theme.
