"I just wanted to say thank you for such a positive meeting last week and for taking the time to give feedback to our students. It is so important for these boys to have the opportunity to see what the workplace is like and to think seriously about their options for the future. I can see that the experiences they had during the summer and time you have taken with them has had a huge impact on their attitude and behaviour in school. Abidul had never considered engineering as an option before but this experience has opened up new possibilities for him in the future. All three students spoken very positively about the work they did in the summer and in a competitive world it will make them stand out in the crowd. I really can’t speak highly enough of the work that you do and its impact on some challenging students."

"We had an amazing time at the Get up to Speed event. Thank you so much and Janice for continually supporting our students. They absolutely loved it and learned so much. One year 8 female student said to me "Miss, Engineering is real fun, I loved it!" I was so chuffed and hope that these events just set a little seed into their minds which will continue to grow over the next few years.
Our Year 10's, even though they did not win the competition, learned so much and had a great opportunity working with Andy and Mike from Newburgh Engineering.”
