STUDENTS AT CORDEAUX School are flying high after Red Arrows Wing Commander, Jason Hawker opened their newly refurbished Engineering Suite.
The new engineering facility, which opened October 4, provides a 'state of the art' engineering environment including the latest high specification Computer Aided Design equipment enabling the school to fulfil its role as a Specialist Engineering College and lead partner for the new Engineering Diploma. The centre was funded by the Learning and Skills Council – part of the successful £5.8 million Wolds College project. Other guests to witness the official opening were Councillor Christine Talbot, chair of County Council Education Committee and Mayor Treanor. Head teacher, Peter Kubicki said: "Our engineering facility is an excellent edition to the wider range of facilities across local schools and FE colleges, which will enhance the practical learning opportunities of young people.
Freerain Ltd have supplied an underground storage tank and associated rainwater harvesting equipment to reduce the amount of mains water consumed by the building. The 20,000 litre system should reduce the mains water demand by 400M3 per year on average.
