Students and teachers at a Fenland college have spent the past two days taking part in a “thinking skills” workshop designed to make them dream.

As part of The School of Dreams programme, which was run by Peterborough-based Marshall Honda, Sir Harry Smith Community College pupils were given inspirational talks and taught new skills such as juggling.

Geoff Peck, general manager at Marshall Honda, said: “It is great to support the workshop in our local school.

“To help children understand they can turn their dreams into reality by learning to use strategies in their early lives will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the local community.”
