Freestone teams up with Bridge Academy South school

Bridge Academy South PBL Invitation
Bridge Academy South PBL Invitation

Freestone’s graphic design and web design skills have benefited many small and charitable organisations over the years and we do like to help out in our community wherever we can. So when we were contacted by the Lead of Project Based Learning (PBL) at Bridge Academy South (BAS) to assist in their latest web based project we were more than happy to lend them our expertise.

Our role involved mentoring a group of students tasked with creating a web site designed to raise funds for the WWF. The project entitled Endangered Species was created by the school to increase awareness of the plight of animals across the planet. From lions and giraffes to bees

The culmination of the project was an open invitation to the general public and dignitaries (including the deputy mayor) to attend the PBL Exhibition which was held at the Irish Centre in Bletchley Milton Keynes. Suffice to say it was a very successful day for the school and so far they have raised several hundred pounds all of which will be going to the WWF. To that we say well done to all at the academy and we would like to wish all students and teachers on the PBL team the best of luck with their next ambitious project.

A bit of background to Bridge Academy South:

Bridge Academy South is based in Bletchley and supports up to 60 students at Key Stage 3 who are at high risk of permanent exclusion or have been permanently excluded from mainstream schooling. The aim for all students at Bridge South is to work towards targets set by referring schools. Once these targets have been achieved they make contact with local schools at Alternative Education Panel and start the process of integrating students back into mainstream schools.
