North Shropshire College (NSC) recently held its annual Family Fun Day at the Oswestry Campus in aid of Hope House and Severn Hospice.
NSC schools liaison coordinator Chloe Edwards hosted a competition for pupils to design their favourite animal using recyclable materials. Chloe said, “I thought it would be great for children to get stuck in and make their own animals from scratch. It also teaches them how certain household materials can be reused such as cereal boxes, milk cartons and egg boxes. There were fantastic entries – everyone really embraced the theme.”
The winner of the competition was 10-year-old Leila Shearer who designed an enormous crocodile made using cereal and egg boxes and toilet rolls and won a Be a Keeper for a Day experience for herself and a friend.
