This year the AJA (the Association of Jersey Architects) with Romerils as the kind sponsor, held a School Teams Competition to construct the tallest tower, using only recycled editions of the Jersey Evening Post.
Our students had a 10 minute introduction and one hour to construct a tower of the team’s own design, built on a base of a single sheet of the JEP that could hold a 200g Dairy Milk chocolate bar.
Our tower won as it was the tallest tower capable of supporting the weight of the chocolate bar without collapsing, with a clearance of 30cm of the next tallest tower.
We were very proud of our students as they also helped clear up the mess made on the day. #lqsrespect #lqsambition #lqsresilience

New School Update

Many of you will have noticed that exciting things have started to happen on the site for the new school. We are very pleased to be able to inform parents, staff, current and prospective students that the Main Contractor, Rok-Regal has now mobilised and commenced the Stage 1 Enabling Works which involves preparing the site to allow the builders to get started on the main buildings.

The contractor will now set up their site accommodation and facilities on theplanned car parking area at the front. You will also notice that the new site exit and entrances are being formed.

In advance of this, the ecological works were carried out as per the requirements of the planning condition. This was followed by the Museum of London Archaeology who has been carrying out the agreed investigations across those fields in public ownership.

The decision to Compulsory Purchase the remaining fields will be debated by the new States Assembly on 26 June.

As you can imagine we are very happy, and a little emotional, to see progress on the land after such a long process to get to this stage. We can’t wait to see the rapid progress planned taking shape over the coming months.

We are currently preparing a section of our website to keep you updated on the new school’s progress and hope to have a time lapse camera on site very soon. This section will also provide details of opportunities for the community to support the new school in creating an outstanding learning environment for the west of the island. We will send out a separate message when this is available to view. Meanwhile, attached are some photographs taken on the first days of mobilisation, including my short ride on a digger!
