Burford Students Exemplify School Values Through Local Community Project

In a heartwarming display of craftsmanship and community spirit, our Year 12 students have recently completed a community project as part of their ‘Preparing to Leave Home’ extended curriculum course. Under the guidance of Mr Rodgers (2nd in charge of Technology) and Mr Waggott (Head of Technology), the students poured their creativity and skills into crafting a sturdy and aesthetically pleasing bench.

Year 12 Preparing to Leave Home Tech Community Project 2024 Minster Lovell SWA Permission 2

The bench, now installed in the village of Minster Lovell, stands as a symbol of the students’ dedication to embodying the school values of ‘respect, participate, reach’. Through this project, they demonstrated respect for their community by identifying a need and actively working to fulfil it. They actively participated in every step of the process, from design to installation, showcasing their commitment to collaborative teamwork. Furthermore, they pushed themselves to reach beyond what they had done previously by demonstrating a high level of skill and ability. We are extremely proud of our students for reaching out to contribute to the betterment of Minster Lovell; they showcased their willingness to go above and beyond in making a positive impact beyond the school gates.

This project exemplifies the importance of hands-on learning experiences that extend beyond the classroom. It teaches our students the value of collaboration, problem-solving, and the joy of seeing their efforts make a positive impact on others. We commend their hard work and look forward to seeing more of their contributions in the future.
