STUDENTS at New College Stamford have been getting creative and working hard on a number of activities recently.

First year business students were given the opportunity to come up with ideas for a name for a new innovative product range with Cummins Generator Technologies.

After weeks of research, the students presented their work to a board of judges at the company.

The winning group was announced on Tuesday and prizes were awarded by Cummins general manager of smart power business units Nicolas Bertrand and marketing flow leader David Moorhouse.

Business course leader Shelley Patrick said “The students worked very hard on the project and gained great real life experience from working closely with Cummins General Technologies’ global marketing team. I think it’s fair to say that Nicolas’ and David’s expectations were far exceeded by the quality of work produced.”

Music students have been live on air this week after the launch of the college’s new radio station Infinity Radio.

The students have been running shows on frequency 87.7fm, which have included live music, special guests, and a range of hits and records.

Lead presenter Anthony Girard, of North Road, Bourne, said: “Everyone at the college has been fantastic in setting this up and it has been the opportunity of a lifetime.”

Thirteen bearded dragons eggs have hatched in the animal care department at the college this month.

Following a successful breeding programme more dragons and some leopard geckos are due in the coming weeks.

Animal care team leader Jackie Clarke-Williams said “This is a very exciting development and we are very proud of both staff and students for their dedication to the breeding programmes.”
