Uriah Woodhead Building Merchants came into school to offer all the materials required to restore our very own Dragon Boat!

After our success in the recent Dragon Boat Festival, John Galt from Bradford Council, who organises the event, kindly donated a Dragon Boat to school. Although rather tired looking, this full size Dragon Boat has stirred our pupils’ excitement. There is lots of work ahead to us to restore the boat to its former glory but we have lots of enthusiastic pupils raring to get started. TSS will be the first school in the UK to have a dry-dock training area, making us the team to beat!

Uriah’s have been so generous and enthusiastic about the project and we are so grateful for their support going forward.

Tracy Clavin, Hardware Sales Manager met with Mr Robinson, Dragon Boat Project Leader, and Mr Collis, Design Technology, to discuss and plan the requirements.

Tracy Clavin said: “Being a local business employer, it is important to give back to the community and in particular give young people in Bradford great experiences, we are very happy to help, I’m looking forward to seeing the new and improved Dragon Boat.”
