Dux Award Winners Attend St Mary's University
Two Year 9 students visit a Russell Group university.
Every year, a national award scheme called the ‘Dux’ award is run for all Year 9 students. This is to highlight the best and brightest academic talents of the future. The two winners from Collingwood were Hanifa Patel and Stefy Barton. They travelled up to London to a special event at a Russell Group university where they attended various lectures, talks and activities aimed at inspiring them to continue studying at the highest level. A particular highlight was the eccentric Professor who merged maths, magic and robots all into one presentation. Both girls really enjoyed the event and have added St Mary’s University of London to their list of great places to study. Well done girls!
