Mayor awards Barking & Dagenham College
18 May 2018
Students from Barking & Dagenham College put their design skills into action by creating a stunning float for London’s New Year’s Day Parade.
The float represented the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham in the televised competition against all the other London boroughs. The college’s take on the theme was ‘Feel the Magic up Close’ and their float was adorned with a circus train travelling to town.
Several students from across the College helped with the float’s design and construction: Creative arts students completed work experience drawing, designing and painting to a client brief sent from the Mayor’s office. Carpentry and painting and decorating students helped with the actual construction of the designs.
