Year 9 Students Explore Sustainability

This week, Braemar College Year 9 students have been working on Sustainability themed Independent Research Projects.

Over three days they have created an amazing array of items using recycled materials. They have based their projects on various aspects of sustainability including environmental and social.

They have tapped into their creativity, using all kinds of media and materials to explore the themes.
