The 18/19 academic year saw us work with West Craven High School for the first time. . . . and what a debut it was! In the face of competition from schools and colleges the length and breadth of the county of the famous Red Rose, the youngest group to enter - a mix of Y9 & Y10 students - emerged victorious and stormed to the first place and £2000.00 package of development support!
Showing a real sense of community, the team eschewed the chance to create a for-profit business app and focussed instead on an environmental and social concern - food waste. Guided by DA industry trainer Paul Holloway - who commented that they were “the most committed group he has led”, the team set about their project with gusto, coming up with a solid app idea aimed at connecting organisations within local communities to collectively decrease food waste.
