A GIRLS’ school held a technology careers event to celebrate a £23 million redevelopment.

Sydenham School, which specialises in science and maths, organised the fair this month so that students could learn about the professions involved in the site’s three-year revamp due to start in January.

Billed as a Building Schools for the Future Story-Board the event enabled the girls to quiz female practitioners representing science, technology and engineering.

Headteacher Carolyn Unsted said: "It is an ideal opportunity for us and so this is the first in a whole series of ways in which we aim to turn the building works to our students’ advantage, integrating it within our curriculum and using it as a means of broadening their horizons." 

Watkins Grey International is designing the new school and its surrounding landscape in Dartmouth Road and sent along architect Stephanie Bryan.

She told the pupils: "One of the great pleasures and challenges you face as an architect is having to problem-solve every day."
