Print-IT Awards

On Thursday 26 June 2014, Matthew McEnroe and Megan Nunn visited the Xerox Innovation Centre in Uxbridge as finalist of the National Print-IT awards.

3000 students entered and on the day there were 32 finalists. Unfortunately, Matthew and Megan did not win in their categories but still thoroughly enjoyed the day.

 During the day they were able to tour the innovation centre playing with the latest technology including an interactive table top, Ibot (Segway controlled via Ipad) and learn about industrial printing methods at Xerox. Megan and Matthew were interviewed on the day which proved to be an interesting experience.  Both students fully embraced the day and acted as excellent role models for Arthur Mellows.

 Matthew and Megan did not go home empty handed.  They were given a goody bag, prints and prizes that included a digital camera, with a memory stick and case.

Mrs Watson and I both had a fantastic day and it was a really great experience to allow the students to make connections to industry beyond the classroom.
