EBDOG Conference comes to Blackpool

Mayor and choir Bispham High School Gospel Choir and staff, Miss Adereti, Mr Moore, and Miss Bagot, meet Councillor Val Haynes (Mayor), and her consort, Mr Alan Haynes

The Education Building Development Officers Group held its national conference here in Blackpool after many years travelling round other towns and cities. With the spotlight on constructing new school buildings to match the numbers of children going through primary schools it was appropriate that Bispham and Collegiate students and staff attended the conference by the invitation of Blackpool Council. (Both schools are currently in the process of joining together on the Bispham site whilst a brand new £14 million build to be known as Blackpool Aspire Academy takes place on the existing Collegiate site following the demolition of Collegiate).

The conference was thrilled to hear the voices of Bispham High School's Gospel Choir and after the three songs a rapturous round of applause was given only to be repeated again following Councillor Ivan Taylor's warm welcome to all delegates. The Worshipful the Mayor Councillor Val Haynes congratulated the choir and thanked them for all their hard work.

Collegiate students joined the conference for the whole day and attended workshops, seminars and lectures by key speakers. The presentation on 'Lets talk – looking at design from another angle' presented by Elizabeth Jarman was a wonderful insight into how to use the senses better when designing rooms and areas.
