A group of Year 8 students from Eastbourne Academy got a chance to try out college for the day when they visited Sussex Coast College Hastings.

40 students from the secondary school in Eastbourne visited the college before the end of term to take part in lessons and join a talk about environmental issues.

The students took part in an A-Level Chemistry lesson, which educated them about biodegradable plastics and the oceans, they then heard about a number of environmental health issues during a Health and Social Care class, and before lunch they heard about contaminated land sites from Mel Lipsham from LEAP Environmental.

After lunch, the students made their way to the fourth floor to enjoy an environmental art workshop where they looked at the work of Tim Nobel and Sue Webster, a collaboration who use recycled materials to create pieces of art work. The students then had a go at creating their own sculptures using washed up materials from the beach, adding light to create a silhouette.

Zoe Delgado, Assistant principal at Eastbourne Academy, said: “The students thoroughly enjoyed their day at Sussex Coast College Hastings. The lessons were really interesting and helped the students to get a better understanding of a number of environmental issues. They had a really great impression of the college and thought building was amazing.”
