Playground Sunshades and Rain Shelters

Do you wish you had extra covered space?

We are all too aware of the increasing need to provide shelter for pupils from harmful UV rays and the worst of British winters. Our large range of canopies and playground shelters are all designed to protect your Students from the sun and keep them dry on those less pleasant days.

Many secondary schools now require extra covered areas for outdoor eating and drinking. If like them your cafeteria or dining room is too small to cater for an increase in the number of your students then a canopy structure could be the answer. Typically a fraction of the cost of a new building or extension our canopy structures are the cost effective solution to creating that additional covered space.

Zenith provide experienced advice and quality canopies to provide you, the customer, with the perfect outdoor covered environment. Give us a call for a FREE site survey and quotation on 01189789072.

It only takes 2 minutes

In the last couple of years I have been very interested in the different ways in which schools are approaching the issue of sublimation printers.

While the D&T departments in some schools see the sublimation printer as a key element in the development of the department, other schools have chosen to go down other routes.

I would really like to understand more about the thinking behind this, and as a first step I’ve constructed a simple questionnaire which I’d like to invite to complete.

It will only take about two minutes to complete, and your answers will not, of course, be revealed to anyone else.

Many thanks

The Sixth Form College, Solihull will host its annual Awards Evening at the Renewal Conference Centre next week, celebrating student success during the 2011/2012 academic year.

Staff and students will be joined at the Lode Lane centre by parents and other notable guests to hand out prizes and enjoy student performances in Music, Dance and Drama. Prizes are being given out for every subject, as well as extra curricular activities, including sport and exceptional progress. A large number of students are also receiving College Colours, which is a special award that any student can apply for by demonstrating leadership, team-work and completing a challenging activity.

Special guest for the event will be Justin King CBE. He was a student at the College from 1977 – 1979 and has gone on to achieve great success since. He has recently been awarded an AoC Gold award for his achievements since leaving College. He is currently the Chief Executive of Sainsbury’s, having also worked for a number of other prominent food manufacturers such as Mars Confectionery, Pepsi International and Haägen Dazs before becoming Director of ASDA in 1994. In 2001, King moved to Marks & Spencer where he managed the food division.

Justin joined Sainsbury’s in 2004, charged with improving sales and halting its declining market share. Within six months, King had launched his recovery programme under the banner, “Making Sainsbury’s Great Again” and has recently been able to announce that the company has achieved 30 consecutive quarters of sales growth.

In January 2009 Justin was appointed to the Board of the London Organising Committee for the Olympics by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London. He was then made a member of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Group and awarded a CBE in the Birthday Honours in 2011.

College Principal Paul Ashdown, commented: “It is fantastic to have such a high profile individual as Justin King as one of our alumni. It just goes to show what you can achieve with a good education behind you and a drive and determination to succeed. We are delighted that Justin is able to join us at our Awards Evening this year and feel sure that his presence will act as a motivation for all our students.”
