Over 60 Palmer’s College students showcased their final projects at their End of Year Show on Thursday 19 March 2015.
The exhibition featured a diverse range of projects from face painting and teaching someone how to dance, to chemical weapons and sexism in sport, social media and more.
The work on display was by students taking the Extended Project, a course equivalent to half an A-level that allows students to produce a focused piece of work on a topic of their choice from four categories; dissertation, field investigation, artefact or performance.
Mark Vinall, Principal, said: “This event is a superb way for students to showcase their talents and creativity. The majority of the students have taken this course as an additional qualification to stretch and challenge them in preparation for university or work and they should be incredibly proud of their achievement.”
A-level student Amber Keeley, a second year student from Grays, said: “I chose to do my project on radiography and I enjoyed the independence of working on a project of my own choice and researching a subject I am really interested in.”
After Palmer’s Amber would like to on to university to study radiography.
Extended Project Co-ordinator Lucy Sankey-Warner, said: “This year has been an outstanding year for students on the Extended Project. They have all worked really hard and managed their own projects in a mature and responsible manner, resulting in projects that are of an extremely high standard.”
