STUDENTS from Vale Royal Borough Council’s learning centres had the chance to further their maths skills at an orienteering day in Delamere Forest on Thursday.
The event was organised by the council’s Lifelong Learning Team to inspire the participants and apply maths to other situations, instead of working from a book.
Working in pairs, the learners were able to benefit from each other’s strengths. Groups set off in 10-minute intervals, working round the course at their own pace.
Lifelong learning spokesman Cllr Frank Dolphin said: “This was a great chance for learners to demonstrate different ways of applying the skills they have gained. The event was a huge success and demonstrates the variety of ways in which courses are delivered at the learning centres.”
Brian Smith, a student at the Junction in Winsford, said: “The orienteering is a fantastic idea and should prove valuable for everyone.”
