Schools students from local schools including Park Lane High & Calder High, visited Calderdale College to take part in taster sessions including animal care, joinery, football, rugby and the creative arts. The programme was put together by Christine Eckersley (School Liaison) who explained the rationale behind the day. "I worked with local schools to put together a programme that was of real value to their pupils.
