New Design and Technology workshop at the British School of Brussels
The British School of Brussels invested EUR 250,000 in the refurbishment of its Design and Technology workshop this autumn. The new facilities are state-of-the-art and some of the best available in Europe.
“Our students are extremely fortunate to learn in such fantastic new facilities,” said Anne Crump, Head of Design and Technology at the school. “I am confident that having access to modern technologies, wide-ranging materials and small class sizes will be a springboard to future success for the students of BSB.”
The new facilities create spacious, clean, safe and creative environments. Two multi-purpose workshops enable students to design and develop their ideas in wood, metals, plastics, electronics and modern smart materials.
“These improvements enable us to deliver a modern curriculum across all secondary age groups” added Anne.
The new workshop was officially opened on 29 September by the Chair of the Board of Governors Saskia Hofgen. Cutting the ribbon to mark the occasion Saskia congratulated all involved on this remarkable investment for student advancement.
“This investment will provide students from the British School of Brussels with the best facilities and exposure to a subject that they are ever likely to encounter anywhere in the world,” said the school principal, Brenda Despontin.
