Young people at West Suffolk schools have been particpating in exciting projects ranging from the science of the world’s oceans to promoting healthy living.

Some 20 girls from Year 10 at King Edward VI School visited the University of East Anglia where they took part in a workshop relating to the physics of the Ocean and toured the university’s science areas.

The aim of the visit was to encourage more girls to take up science at A-Level and was part of the school’s Open Minds programme.

Meanwhile students from St Benedicts Catholic School have won a top award in this year’s Live Well Suffolk Oscars for their film which warned of the dangers of smoking.

The film, Draw My Life, was made by Elizabeth McCuaig, Maddie Feehan and Lauren Buckley. Students from Priory School also won the award for the most creative film in the healthy living section.

Sixth form students at Thurston enjoyed a visit from Dame Veronica Sutherland as part of the school’s Headspace talks. She spoke to pupils about Britain’s place in the world.
