Rose Hill pupils score a hat trick!
Year 6 pupils from Rose Hill School have scooped a hat trick of prizes winning second, third and runners up in the national John Lewis Innovation Challenge. The task was to reinvent a school blazer and give it a new life.
Pupils won second prize with a stationery folder, third prize with a dog coat and the runner up prize was a remote control pouch. The prize was an invitation to meet Paula Nikolds who is the first female Managing Director in the company’s long history.
Pupils presented their winning products to Ms Nikolds and explained how they had come up with the idea as well as talking about the materials they had used. “When it was our turn to talk about the product I felt like I was on the Apprentice, it was very exciting!”
Pupils then leant about John Lewis and how it manages sustainability and ethical employment.
Emma Neville, Head said “this has been a fantastic project for Year 6 to get involved in. They have come up with some brilliant designs as well as learning about sustainability and recycling. Well done to everyone involved”.
