Hastings Borough Council invited primary schools and academies in Hastings to submit an application for a small grant to introduce students in Reception, Y1 and Y2 to employability and enterprise linked to STEAMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths and Medicine)
Schools were encouraged to develop projects that included links to Hastings that could be delivered outside the classroom and feature either one or a combination of the thematic areas of STEAMM.
“We’re really pleased to announce that Christchurch School and Sacred Heart RC School are both successful applicants and have secured a grant of £500 each to develop their projects”, said Cllr Dawn Poole the council’s lead member for regeneration.
She added, “Christ Church’s project is designed to encourage confident mathematicians in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to use their skills in a real life situation. The project will be an opportunity to develop employability skills, raise aspirations and safely grow and prepare food for sale.
“Sacred Heart’s project is designed to encourage Year 2 students to learn about architecture through the years, leading to an enterprise project where participants are able to sell the goods they have designed. We look forward to seeing the schools’ project presentations in due course”
