Year 12 Geography and Business Studies students have embarked on an
exciting opportunity to use their classroom based skills and knowledge
in a real world situation.
Working with SW Lakes Trust the 14 students will be working on a project
to rebrand Burrator Reservoir with an aim of assisting visitors to
‘learn about the area and look after the area’.
Mrs Froud from the Geography department said “a sustainable world for
future generations to enjoy is an essential ethos of geography today, so
the opportunity to work with Business Studies and SW Lakes is fantastic
geography in action”.
Mrs berryman, from the Business Studies department will be focused on
the funding and marketing elements of the project said “We’re looking
forward to working on this exciting project and giving the students the
opportunity to experience real world learning”.
The project has an initial time scale of 12 months, but it is hoped that
it will evolve and be an on going relationship between the College and
an area of stunning beauty.
