Seismometer Donation By Fulston Manor School
Mrs Sarah Palmer, Community Cohesion Manager, visited Hunterhouse College in Belfast, Northern Ireland where she presented the Deputy Head, Peter McQuinlan with a brand new seismometer so that Hunterhouse College can take readings of any earthquake activity around the world.
The seismometer was donated by Fulston Manor School out of monies received from The Co-operative Group and the British Geological Survey will now be able to take readings from Fulston Manor School, South Avenue Junior School and Hunterhouse College and compare the data collected. Mr McQuinlan was delighted to receive such an impressive piece of kit and said “ We cannot thank Fulston Manor School enough. Being part of the Co-op Schools Network means that we can share information and ideas but never expected our working relationship to extend to a seismometer!”
