Queens Hill Primary School and Nursery youngsters were given a guided tour of the vehicle and explanation behind how it is different to a fuel car on Friday 16th January 2015.

Inclusion leader at the school, Chris Georgiou, organised for the car to be lent to the school – from Robinsons Motor Group on Barker Street in Norwich – as part of an ongoing school programme.

Mr Georgiou said: “The science and technology involved in the car supports our current ‘light-bulb moment’ curriculum theme that our children are passionately studying across the school.

“At Queen’s Hill Primary we make every effort to inspire our children and to accelerate their learning – bringing an electric vehicle in to school supported our aims in this respect.”

The children were taught how the electric cars have been engineered to be safe for the environment. And they were given practical lessons with it – for instance, comparing cost per mile of electric to petrol.

Mr Georgiou added: “The day was absolutely fantastic. The children had a variety of interesting questions and just as many great ideas.”
