STUDENTS from a school on Walney took part in a special activity day learning all about Wind Farms.

Some Year Eight students from Walney School were involved in a 3D Wind Turbine STEM Day.

A spokesman from the school said: “The day was a huge success and pupils enjoyed the activity of designing and modelling a wind farm and learning how it would impact on the environment in a virtual reality 3D world.

“The pupils did themselves and Walney School proud and their final presentations were first class.

“Pupils learned about the cost implications of selecting the right turbine and working out profits, income and maintenance costs of running a wind farm.”

The school’s Year Nine boys football team also had a successful week.

The young footballers continued their winning streak by beating a very talented Furness Academy squad.

In a game of two halves the team were eventually triumphant winning comfortably 3-0.

In the final third, the team started to play with much more freedom and a lot more creativity going forward, courtesy of Callum Kendal and Cain Ferguson.

This allowed Jonty O'Neill more freedom in the middle of the park, who scored the all important first goal. From there on in, there was no looking back.

A spokesperson from the school said: “What an occasion for the students to pick up their trophy in front of a large set of travelling fans at Holker Street, the home of Barrow AFC.”
