Overall best example of the PBL process and purpose – Grace Milliken and Molly Cook. You have identified an issue and researched this to back up your thoughts. You have conducted your own research into designs and layouts. You independently communicated with the relevant professionals and initiated a meeting to discuss possible changes. You have thoroughly documented your research, your findings, your reflections and planning throughout. You will most likely have an impact and see your change in action in our school next year. Well done!
