Ian McCutheon and students.
A total of 30 students took part in the project which took top honors in the piloted boat category and won excellence awards for boat design, graphic design and the PowerPoint presentation.
“We send many, many thanks to everyone involved and especially to Roland for providing us with the boat,” McCutheon said. “The best part of the experience is that it engaged the students tremendously and generated new enthusiasm for learning throughout the entire school. I’m still amazed by the number of students I don’t even know who come up to me and congratulate us on the result. It’s a fantastic concept and is a real testimony to the level of excellence our students can achieve.”
