A wide range of exceptional Design Technology and Science project work was showcased by students from across Dorset to an invited audience at the annual Valter Prize Award Ceremony which took place on 14 July at the Hamworthy Club. Dorset ASSET and Valter Prize Trustees adjudged Frances Martin from Thomas Hardye as the winner of the top Valter Prize for her innovative wooden hammock; Rebecca Buley won the Gwen Kent prize for textile technology with her Alter-Ego dress; the CERN@school team Jonathan Hoare, Emily McFarlane, Alfred Dal Din, Joshua Nugent and Joshua Doherty shared the Science Prize donated by the Royal Naval Cordite Factory Association. The Thomas Hardye School was awarded the prestigious David Cockbaine Shield Award in recognition of its positive response to the objectives of Dorset ASSET and the Valter Prize Trust which encourages students to become Scientists, Engineers and Technologists.

Runner-up prizes went to Marcus Hutchings for his Wheeled garden bench seat, Natasha Walner for her African dress, Lewis Burden with his Zip-up jacket and gauntlet. Certificates of Achievement were awarded to Charlotte Ashfield, Oliver Malkin and Joseph Thompson.

The school is very grateful to Paul Goodwin, manager for the Dorchester and Weymouth area and to all the other Trustees of Dorset Asset for the generous support they have given to many STEM initiatives at The Thomas Hardye School in recent years.
