Competitions, Trips and Events
All Year 9 pupils have the opportunity to enter the Aluminium Design Challenge. This nationwide competition, open to 11-14 year olds, asks pupils to come up with creative designs in response to one of three set design briefs. Pupils must present their designs using a range of techniques and show clearly how and why the materials were chosen and how the design is sustainable. The competition reflects the groups use of Aluminium in their Coat hook project.
Kilkeel High has a good track record in this competition having had pupils selected for the national final every year since the competitions inception, two years ago. The videos below explain the competition in more detail and the second shows how our pupils enjoyed the experience.
