Mayor opens state-of-the-art ICT suite

Inspirational classrooms in a new £1.5 million ICT suite at Havering Sixth Form College were officially opened by the Mayor on Tuesday during a prize-giving ceremony.

The modern building at the front of the College has been named Berners-Lee House after Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web.

Havering Mayor, Cllr Brian Eagling and his wife, Mayoress Bunny Eagling, unveiled a plaque and were then taken on a tour before presenting gift vouchers to the Vocational Faculty’s Students of the Term.

The Mayor told the students: “I wish you every success – this is a wonderful building so you should make use of it and spread the word about the excellent facilities at Havering Sixth Form.”

The winning students – Jason Watt and Aaron Campbell (ICT), Favour Akalonu and Adeoluwa Oduko (Business), Jack Keeley and Tyler Bunn (Sport), Amy Nicholls and Millie Nunn (Legal Secretaries), and Gemma Smith and Mollie Dibben (Travel and Tourism) – were presented with Amazon gift vouchers.

College Principal Paul Wakeling said: “This is a proud day for us. We are pleased that we can showcase the fantastic resources that we have here.”

Berners-Lee House is used for teaching vocational BTEC courses. It contains a practical room for student assessments and high tech C touch screens for interactive teaching and learning.
