A group of Year 10 pupils took part in a work experience day, organised by Barhale, a civil engineering and infrastructure specialist. They learnt all about the company and were then set to work on a project: designing and building a water tower. Pupils created their own bid for the project, including an environmental impact report and health and safety precautions. They had to carefully work towards a budget and under strict time constraints. Pupils then moved from design to construction of a model and presented their feedback at the end. This experience allowed pupils to develop skills of leadership, communication, innovation, adaptability and teamwork.
