Thornhill Pupils starred in a recent Enterprise Day on Friday 18th October.
All Year 10 pupils were included and the event was developed and run by the Sunderland Education Business Partnership. The day was called Soaring to Success and involved the pupils designing and creating a theme park. They had only paper, coloured pens, sequins, card, scissors, glue and pipe cleaners to use to make the theme park. The groups had excellent ideas including a Monumental Theme Park that included rides based on the Eiffel Tour and The Coliseum, an animal themed Animania Theme Park and a music themed park and a Best of British Theme Park.
The pupils were helped during the day by business ambassadors from Gentoo, New College Durham, EDF and Sunderland Council, all the ambassadors voted on two groups who were chosen as winners on the day.
