Solihull College support King Edwards School for 4th year running
Thursday, 21 April, 2016

Solihull College & University Centre’s community department has once again worked with King Edwards Girls’ School for the 4th year running.

Rose Rogers, tutor at the College, visited the school recently to be part of an enrichment event. The day consisted of a variety of different workshops for students to book onto with sessions running throughout the day. For many years Solihull College & University Centre has offered a jewellery making session which always proves popular with the students and this year was no different. Forty of the students at the school opted to take part in the jewellery making and the students, with the help of the College’s Rose Rogers, began making the brooches.

The students at the school in Edgbaston, were provided with different coloured beads and wire by Solihull College & University Centre and tasked with constructing a dragonfly brooch by constructing a body and wings and then thread the beads on to create a pattern. Rose worked with the students throughout the day to make a variety of different brooches that they could then take home with them. All of the students enjoyed the session from the College and King Edwards Girls’ School complimented the session with some great feedback. Solihull College & University Centre tutor Rose Rogers commented: “We had a super day. The school made me most welcome and it was a pleasure to work with the girls. All achieved and enjoyed and I received some super feedback, not only from the girls but from staff and other pupils in the school.”

Solihull College & University Centre aims to work within the local community to allow students to experience the different types of courses that are available at both their Blossomfield and Woodlands Campuses.

The College and King Edwards Girls’ School hope to continue working together in the future on many more successful events.
