Sidmouth College in the mood for Olympic challenge

Sidmouth College students compete in Olympic 2010 PE Enterprise Day

A TEAM of Year Nine students from Sidmouth College will be entered into a national competition after taking part in the college’s first Olympic 2012 PE Enterprise Day.

Some 30 students worked in teams to bid to become a pre-games training camp under the Olympic ‘Get Set’ Network.

They gave up a Saturday to work all day to produce some superb work, creating a mood board, company name and logo and, during the afternoon chose a team to pitch their company ideas to.

PE teacher Ben Williams said: “Each company had unique ideas and put them across fantastically in their presentations.”

He said the three judges had difficulty in deciding a winner, but chose the Belfast team (pictured) of Kitty Harrison, Joe Griffiths, Will Price, George Barber, Will Sanders, Alicia Harrington and Katie Bower.

Mr Williams said: “The day was an amazing success and the pupils were a credit to themselves and the college.”
