Bodriggy Academy pupils compete to design trophy for Cornwall Sustainability Awards
Pupils at a Hayle school had a lesson in business and design before being asked to create an award fit for a prize giving ceremony.
Year five pupils at Bodriggy Academy took part in a Junior Enterprise Challenge Day, organised by Cornwall Learning Education Business Partnership, to design an award for Cornwall Sustainability Awards for schools.
Supported by Parc Signs and Dynamic Date Systems, the pupils spent the day looking at a range of materials and designs to create the award, before presenting the final product to judges.
“The Junior Enterprise Challenge Day provided the pupils with the opportunity to learn about sustainability as well as develop their designs,” said Kate Whetter education projects manager at Cornwall Education Business Partnership.

Judges choose the model of a trophy in the shape of an apple with a Cornish flag on it as the winner, as it reflected the Food and Drink category as well as having a Cornish theme.
Karen Barnett of Parc Signs, who was one of the judges, said: “It was fantastic to see so much creativity and enthusiasm in the pupils. The ideas they came up with and the way they worked together as part of team was great to see. Now to make the winning design into a finished product.”
Parc Signs will produce the award ready to be presented to the winners at the ceremony on December 6.
Head teacher at Bodriggy Academy, David May, said the project provided a great opportunity for children to work together to achieve a common goal.
