THERE was a chance for schools in the Wisbech area to share their most successful ideas at a special event held at the town's Boathouse Business Centre.
Nine primary schools, Meadowgate School and the Thomas Clarkson Community College set out their own 'stalls' displaying ideas and schemes which could be used by others.
Head teacher at Nene School, Lesley Mardle, said the event had been organised by The Wisbech Schools Project. She said: "Part of good practice is sharing that good practice and it was decided we would show our good ideas in a market place situation.
"This is the first time we have done it in this way. We have often got together informally but this was a chance for heads and staff to celebrate what we have done and for others to pick up ideas."

Each school had stallholders who set up the displays and were able to chat to others about the ideas. At the end of the afternoon the various schools held their staff meetings at the Boathouse.
Initiatives on show included a prefect's team building weekend, a school's wind turbine, playground development, a literacy theme working across all ages, helping to make a healthy school with a shake and wake routine, and making sure all pupils who do not have English as their first language are fully included.

Mrs Mardle said: "The variety of ideas was really good and it was a great pleasure to be able to hold such an event in such a superb venue in our home town. We often have to go out of town for these things."
Feedback from the event has been so good that it is hoped to hold them at regular intervals.
