Ewloe schoolchildren pupils reach for the skies in Airbus competition

CHILDREN at Penarlâg Primary School in Ewloe reached for the sky in a competition to design an egg-carrying aircraft.

The Project Eggs Factor competition saw pupils working together to design an aeroplane made of at least 50% recycled materials.

Teacher Ceri Bevan-Smith said: “The competition was arranged with Airbus, who challenged pupils to design the aircraft in their design and technology class to see whose quail egg could fly the furthest.

“It has been an amazing success and the pupils were amazed at how far the egg had flown.”

Ceri added: “In the infants class we had eggs rolling down a hill, eggs which the children had decorated.

“There was also an Easter-themed assembly in the morning, where Year 3 and 4 pupils took part and acted out the Easter story. Parents came along for that too.”
