Safapac rewards top performing science students at local college

For the third year running Safapac has recognised top performing science students at Sawtry Village Academy.

John Blaydes, technical director, presented awards during assembly to Ellie Mae Gardiner, Lawrence Nobbs, Emma Tomsett, Sarah Cunningham, and Danial Heap, who all passed their GCSEs and BTech exams with flying colours this summer.

John said: ”It’s so important to encourage the younger generation to explore the sciences. Our business ultimately relies on science graduates coming up through the ranks and by building relationships with local schools, we look to encourage more students to think of a career using science.

“Students often aren’t sure what careers they can pursue if they study science, so we offer work placements and tours of our facility to broaden their knowledge.”

The top performing young scientists received Amazon vouchers from Safapac. Last year Safapac supported the school’s science department with tablets to allow students to record data from experiments, and it will be continuing support this academic year with further investment.
