All Saints C of E Primary School

Amateur Radio Foundation Licence

5 children at All Saints’ Church of England Primary school, Rangemore. celebrated success this week by achieving their ‘Foundation Licence Amateur Radio examination’ after 12 months of study culminating in a final practical, theory and Morse Examinations.’ This qualification is usually secured by adults and is something which they can add to their CVs for the future as well as use their licence to communicate with other amateur radio enthusiasts across the globe. We hope to complete our original plan to speak to the International Space Station, which at this time will be Dr. Kathleen Rubins who is also licenced radio amateur. Mrs Gethin, (executive headteacher) said “We congratulate our children on their achievements. This work forms part of a range of work in encouraging all of our children and especially girls, in the world of science, mathematics and engineering . Additionally, we are so thankful to Mr Roger Ridley  and Mr Mike Surplice for their commitment to our Federation in leading this ARISS project and Mr Ridley’s continued leadership of our chess clubs too. Mrs Ridley said of the children’s achievement, “The reason I do this is to inspire young people into scientific exploration and they have excelled .”
