Extended Project - Get some credit.

The WJEC Extended Project qualification can enable Year 13 students to gain UCAS accreditation at AS-Level for their project work, either individually or within a team.  Subject to approval of their project title, students can submit a team project with their Extended Project Outcome as their end product.  This may be an artifact or model, or electronic or other non-written submission.  For this type of project, each student is expected to produce Project Outcome Notes of a minimum of 2,000 words.  Tessa Gabriel-Davies, Pathways Development Officer at WJEC, will present the qualification at a meeting in Belfast at: 1.30 pm (tea / coffee and sandwiches will be available form 1.00)

Woodturning update

John Keenan demonstrating his skills.
As you are probably aware the Clounagh Centre ran a 6 week afternoon course in the safe use and operation of the woodturning lathe.  The course was well attended and everyone involved was grateful for the valuable instruction of both Tom and Eugene.  We would like to thank both instructors who gave up their free time to disseminate their skills and expertise.  Due to the success and interest in this course it is hoped that further sessions will be run in the near future.
