TWO pupils from Bootham School, who took part in the mass work experience ‘Takeover Day’, have seen the fruits of their labours in the promotion of a National Festival of Archaeology.

The pair, Charlotte Ellery and Lisa Surmenko, spent time with the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), and while there, they designed a newsletter to help promote the festival.

The CBA were so pleased with the girls’ work that they sent it out to more than 2,000 organisations nationally.

Charlotte said: “The thing that impressed us both was just how many people you have to involve in order to make an event successful.”

Lisa said: “I was also struck by the need to use traditional letters and mail-outs, and not just rely on technology to do the work.”

Takeover Day was a national event, held last November where school pupils get to have a go at adult jobs.
