The winners of the exciting competition Bradford College launched to
mark the unveiling of the new Accommodation Strategy was revealed
today. Course Tutor, Kay Marshall, Learning Assistant, Jean Plowman
and their students from Personal & Community Skills, beat off stiff
competition to scoop the £100 prize and have their names immortalised
forever within a memorial in the new building.
Principal, Michele was proud to present the winners of the Phase 1 naming competition with the £100 prize money and reveal the name of the new building. Michele said: “We received almost 100 entries. I would like to thank everyone who took part in the competition. I would like to announce that the winning entry for the competition to name the new Phase 1 College Building is: "Trinity Green Campus! This reflects the innovative and inspirational nature of the new building.”
The new building is eco friendly with low carbon emissions, designed to maximise natural light/ventilation built with sustainability in mind.
Explaining the inspiration behind the newly named building, Course Tutor, Kay said: “Part of my syllabus is to promote the importance of environmental and related green issues. Both Jean and I encouraged the students to think about the area surrounding the new build. We took the students up there to observe the green aspect of the surrounding area. The name was developed out of a group discussion. We thought about place names in the area, the environmental and the innovative implications of the new build.”
Kay continued: “Both Jean and I are delighted our group of students with learning disabilities are part of the winning team! They’re immensely proud of being students at Bradford College and get a great deal out of the experience. Their success in being part of the group who thought up the new name will raise their profile and give them a stake in the future of the College!”
