Design and Technology Year 8 Trip to De Montfort University Art and Design Degree Show
On Wednesday 21 June, 30 Year 8 students had the amazing opportunity to visit De Montfort University and explore the Art and Design degree show.
We had an inspiring careers talk and guided tour by the student ambassadors. They showed us around the very comfortable student accommodation, the leisure centre and all the new buildings and luscious grounds.
We all had a ceramics workshop where we were taught how to throw small pots on the spinning wheel which was really good fun and not as easy as it looks. We lunched in the student canteen and then had a supervised tour of the degree show where we were astonished by the quality and range of work on display.
The whole experience has inspired me, it has helped me understand what university is like; DMU is amazing. Thank you so much to the staff for taking us.
