Cookie Club on Tour!

Cookie Club on tour!

On Tuesday 19 June the Cookie Club did a trip to De Montfort University for a group of year 9s who had been selected because of their interests in design or art. They travelled to see the university’s art and design show which featured the best work of final year students before they graduate.

Our students were given a guided tour of the workshops before being  allowed to wander freely amongst the many floors of exhibits which varied from engineering designs through to textiles and fine art. The UCC students got to talk with many of the undergraduates about their work and about university life in general. In addition they also got to see some of the other parts of the campus such as the Food Village and the outdoor seating area. Many enjoyed eating their lunch whilst watching a World Cup game on the giant outdoor screen.

This was a very successful trip and continues to build on the links we have with De Montfort. I will certainly be seeking other similar trips in the future to there and other venues.

Can I thank all parents for their continued support of the Cookie Club and I wish you a great summer.
