STUDENTS at a specialist college near Oswestry proudly represented their school at a skills competition against a Sheffield-based College.

Derwen College students competed against Landmarks Specialist College in online competitions focusing on hospitality, catering, travel and road safety, and customer service.

Challenges were held virtually through the use of Zoom and the Kahoot quiz app, allowing students who were working both from home and at the college to take part.

Alison Adams, hospitality and housekeeping pathway lead at Derwen College, was proud of how well the students performed.

She said: “The competitions held via Zoom with Landmarks College were a great success. All students did extremely well to focus on competitions during what has been a very different Summer term for everyone.

“Credit should also go to the dedication of the staff and parents who worked with the students to prepare them for this week, and to our colleagues at Landmarks College for organising the event.”

In the customer service competition, student Aaliyah James was first, Adehle Stafford was third, Sam Innes was fourth and Tom Alexander was runner-up.

In the catering and hospitality competition, William Chapple was awarded third place and in the travel and road safety competition, Millie Clarke was fourth.
