Congratulations to APS head of DT, Laura Pearl, who has won Design Teacher of the Year.  The winner was announced at a star studded event at the Design Museum in Knightsbridge.  Ms. Pearl joined APS in 2010 and leads our Design Technology department.  She was joined at the event by a team of year 10 APS designers who had also been shortlisted in the National Ventura Design awards. The team’s design for a practical way to recycle plastic bottles made the top 10 shortlist from the 588 schools that entered. They were pipped at the post to the top prize but well done to them all:

  • Paisley Cole
  • Daniel Dobres
  • Grace Geller
  • Ky Hope
  • Ailsa Robb
