Shuttleworth student Lucy attends the 3D Printing Club at the school and took her love of making items home.
“I attended the 3D Printing Club at the school and have made a teddy bear and a little reindeer but I was inspired to try something bigger,” said Lucy, 12.
Lucy’s dad James works as a Technical Team Leader and designs parts at Veka UK so he helped her with some of tricky parts.
“My dad works at Veka and he helped me to design a castle, it’s a Cinderella castle and we enjoyed doing it.
“Then I brought it to life with a 3D printer and I was so impressed with it.
“It is quite intricate and is was amazing watching it build up from the bottom. I am really proud of it and it has turned out better than expected.
“I want to be a scientist and there are obviously STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) involved in 3D printing so it is something to show off!”
Our Year 11 student, Bethany, has been battling cancer for a number of years. We are holding a Ball in the hope of raising several thousand pounds, allowing her and her family to go to Disneyland next summer. Bethany has been an incredible patient, undergoing horrible treatment without complaint and attending school every possible day.
We will be running a raffle and auction on the evening of the ball; raffle tickets will be available from reception from 1st February and any contributions in terms of raffle or auction prizes would be greatly appreciated.
If you would like to donate to Bethany’s fund, we have set up a ‘donations’ option on Parentpay.
Tickets for the ball are available at reception or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Bethany Barry is a Year 11 student who has been fighting against naso-pharyngeal cascinoma for the last two years.
The school are aiming to raise enough money to send Bethany and her family to Disneyland after her GCSE examinations this summer.
“Bethany has been amazingly resilient over this time and has done everything she can to keep up with her studies despite spending months being treated, including going to America last year,” said Shuttleworth College headteacher Mrs England.
“Bethany is still undergoing regular treatment and is balancing this while preparing for her GCSEs this summer.
“Throughout the past two years, Bethany has not wanted a fuss to be made or any special treatment. However her family and school have decided she really does deserve something special after her exams. ”
The school have already held a non-uniform day to kick start Beth’s appeal with all money raised going to fund the trip.
The event is at Burnley FC on Saturday 24th February with a three-course meal, entertainment and a disco. Tickets are £35, available from 01282 682300 or by emailing email@example.com. If any companies would like to get involved with our fundraising activities, please get in touch.
