Funded by Friends: Uppers’ Greenpower Car Project

In September 2015 we were approached by a Ditcham parent to consider a bid to fund a “Greenpower Car” to provide the pupils of Upper Juniors with a teambuilding engineering project.  The car eventually built was proposed to be entered into a inter-school championship at Goodwood racetrack!  Even better, once completed by the first group of Uppers, the car could be dismantled for the next year’s Uppers to build and race themselves!

This idea was well received by the FDPS Committee, particularly as it would benefit the entire year group, and subsequent Uppers children year after year.   Consequently we donated the required funds of £1,600 to the School, and delighted to say that in summer 2016 the first Ditcham Greenpower Car was built and raced!

See the pictures below and a fantastic time lapse film produced by the School during the project.
