Porsche Centre Hatfield visit Lonsdale on 11th June 2019
On Monday 11th June, a local Porsche Centre Hatfield brought 6 of their cars to school to surprise our pupils and staff. The idea was born when the BBC visited a month earlier to report about pupils taking GCSEs at Lonsdale. One of our students had put a sentence about Porsche being his favourite car on his eye-gaze. So Dan Jones and his team from Porsche agreed to surprise out students and treat them to a special experience at the end of the day of their last exam.
Pupils, Staff and family members were there to see the prestigious cars arrive. Everyone had a go at walking around the cars, sitting in them, revving the engine, beeping the horns and trying out the various buttons to move windows up and down or to control the radio.
It was a great evening here at Lonsdale, and our visitors from the BBC returned, too, to share our news live on Look East.
Well done to all our pupils who endured and completed their exams! We are proud of you!
