Top marks for Reaseheath at Skills North West
Reaseheath College’s action packed exhibition was awarded ‘Best Interactive Stand’ at last week’s Skills North West event.
The college took top honours after judges gave it full marks for the enthusiasm of its staff and students and the diversity of ‘have a go’ activities it offered visitors. School groups from across the region enjoyed activities including riding the college’s mechanical horse, making jewellery from flowers, dissecting a rat (plastic!) and talking to stick insects.
Visitors also had the chance to taste chocolate prepared by our patisserie and bakery students and take part in interactive construction related games.
Throughout the two day showcase event staff and students from our food, floristry and animal management departments made several appearances on the ‘Spotlight Stage’, where they wowed visitors with live demonstrations and specialist talks.
Marketing Team Leader Stephanie Owen said: “This was a fantastic showcase for the college, particularly as for many of the schools who attended, this was the first time they had heard of Reaseheath.
“It was brilliant to see the enthusiasm from our staff and students who worked so hard to ensure the success of the event. Organisers were so impressed they have offered us extra exhibition space next year!”
