Twelve GCSE Resistant Materials students visited the bespoke furniture company 'Unto This Last' in Brick Lane. They spent time learning about the unique design and manufacturing techniques used at 'Unto This Last'; allowing computers to create furniture designs from start to finish. They received a machining demonstration on the 3 axis CNC router, and were then taught how to replicate the assembly for a set of lamp designs; which they were able to take home after the visit.
Elif Shafak, author of 'Honour' said, “I was a lonely, unhappy child when I came across a hidden gate in the dullness of daily life. Behind that gate was the wonderful universe of Storyland. I stayed there. I grew up there. Books saved me from sameness, anger, insanity and self-destruction. Books taught me about love and so much more.... Everywhere in the world people talk about the need to promote literacy and the love of books, but very few agencies genuinely, generously and effectively work to this end. Swimming against the current, World Book Night is a true exception.” HAPPY READING!

We were delighted to welcome Spanish students as part of the exchange programme this week. They spent time at Chace learning about our education system and helping out in Spanish lessons enabling Chace students to practise their Spanish. And the sun shone on our visitors as they went sight seeing in London.
