Enrichment week – Friday

Posted: 19th February 2021

Our final day of enrichment week before we return to lessons on Monday.

Today there was plenty of room for creativity amongst our students with two Creative Conundrums today and a MasterChef competition!

Our first Creative Conundrum is to draw either an original superhero in costume, a runway model wearing an original design outfit or a bride at a wedding wearing an original wedding dress! The second Creative Conundrum is a painting competition, no electronics allowed! Students could collect paints and a canvas to create a masterpiece. There was no brief for this one – students can be as creative as they would like.

Tomorrow there will be a Creative Conundrum showcase and we are looking forward to seeing all the entries from this week’s various competitions!

The MasterChef competition took place during the afternoon and students were invited to the canteen to choose their ingredients from a larder provided by our fantastic canteen staff from Holroyd Howe.  Students then took their ingredients back to their kitchens to create something yummy!

Our careers team continued their great work this work with providing online opportunities for CSFC students with their last selection of talks, presentations and workshops.

Future chemists were recommended to attend a virtual taster session hosted by Sheffield University exploring how chemists analyse their samples, they discussed infrared spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance and had a Q&A with current university Chemistry students.

A select number of students were invited to attend the ‘Introduction to Medicine’ presentation by Dr Jenkins from the Bill Mapleson Centre. This is a regular enrichment week activity for our students and we can’t wait to be back in person with the team from Cardiff University.

Katie Mcgrath, a recent graduate, spoke to students about Accountant & Nuclear graduate schemes, her work during industry placements whilst at University and her current work with Sellafield.

Christopher North and Grace Mullally from Cardiff University School of Astronomy & Physics offered a research, careers and admissions talk for all students interested in Natural Sciences or Engineering. Whilst at the same time Maryam, a student at University of Plymouth gave a Dentistry careers and admission presentation to a group of CSFC students who had plenty of questions for her about their future career and her experience at University and on placements.
