Bishop Vaughan School’s close links with Swansea University continued this week with a visit from the University’s Sustainable Transport team.
Mr McKay’s Year 12 Skills/WBQ class have been working on a project to develop sustainable school transport, particularly electric school buses. To help with their research, Nigel Morris of the Swansea University transport team visited the school with one of the university’s electric cars. He gave a detailed talk about the car and the sustainability issues associated with using electric transport. Nigel also assisted the pupils with identifying ways in which electric buses could be used to make school transport more environmentally friendly.
Today’s visit is one of many close links the school has forged with Swansea University for the benefit of pupils, who are able to access specialist knowledge and new technology to further their own learning. The school is very grateful to Nigel Morris and Swansea University for their time.
