The Y9 DLS Spring term competition on the theme of inventions tasked the pupils with designing and writing about an invention for a common problem.  The field was strong this year with pupils tackling environmental issues, safety, hygiene, convenience, energy and even hairstyles.  The presentations were clearly well planned and rehearsed, with candidates exuding confidence as they presented to a panel of Dragons including Mr Healy, Mrs Rendell, Mrs Cooper and Mrs Rowell.
