STEM opportunities for WVC students - posted 13th Jan

Twenty Year 9 Engineering students attended an event at Stainless Metalcraft in conjunction with Cambridge University to experience an engineering environment. Working in teams, our students really enjoyed building bridges out of scrap paper in such a manner as to understand how materials work under stress. They competed against each other and an apprentice’s team (from Stainless Metalcraft). Our girls’ team were victorious, building the bridge that took the most weight. The second part of the day was a tour of the apprenticeship workshop and training area, followed by a tour of their newest manufacturing facility. All students thoroughly enjoyed the day and this will further enhance their learning for GCSE Engineering.

Strictly Kate - posted 19th Dec

Our student Kate has been part of the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ culture over the last few months. Kate is an avid fan and a walking encyclopaedia of the show. Whilst having taken ballet classes, she does not see herself getting into ballroom dancing. She is interested in the costumes and the glitz but says she is not a ‘girly’ girl. Her fascination is with the whole ‘Strictly’ experience, the way the show is made and the excitement of it.

WVC Donation to Ely Foodbank - posted 16th Dec

At WVC, we wanted to help Ely Foodbank at this critical time of year and spread a little Christmas cheer. Our House Managers came up with the idea of a Reverse Advent Calendar where students donate food, toiletries and gifts in the lead up to the end of term. For their generosity, students were rewarded with a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) which equates to house points for their House. All RAK’s were entered into a prize drawer where one winner from each House received a Cineworld voucher.
