The Annual “Construction Challenge” was held at Central College Nottingham’s Beeston Campus on Thursday 6th March 2014
Almost 40 students turned up from 5 schools in the morning to learn about various construction trade skills which included bricklaying; plastering; carpentry and joinery; electrical; painting and decorating.
In the afternoon the students competed against each other and then were judged by experts to see which student had done best in each discipline, and to see which school had performed the best overall.
The schools involved were Carlton Le Willows, Toothill Schools, Central Mixed Schools, Hadden Park and Emmanuel School.
Certificates were awarded to all students and prizes were given out by Alan Crich, Life President of CAGE Greater Nottingham.
Plastering winner: Cole Maule;
Bricklaying winner: Shamack Solousk
Painting & Decorating winner: Elliener Arnold
Carpentry & Joinery winner: Maugan Shreeve
Electrical winner: Kallum Hudson
Overall winning school: The Emanuel School
