Split into teams, the students competed to create the tallest, free standing animal out of a few supplied materials.

The winning animal was created by Olivia Preece, Damien Horwood, Amy Thorold and Caitlin Jones-Fullerton and was over eight feet tall.

The afternoon event concluded with a general knowledge quiz involving staff and students which was won by the ‘Mortar Boards’, staff team.

Angela Woolrich, Executive Director of General Education and Services to Business said:

“It was a great afternoon, thoroughly enjoyed by both students and staff who worked together to make it a hugely successful event.  

At Coleg Cambria we are keen for our students to be involved in projects of this kind as we are committed to ensuring that they have many enriching experiences that promote their well-being and ability to contribute to the wider community. ”
