Build Club - written by Maddox Allan

Some fine people (Maddox, Rayffe, Luke, Noah and Lee) made some scooter ramps for scooter/skate club. It took us nearly a whole term. We had our ups and downs but we worked hard and together to get the job done, but we could never have done it without Mr King the Hard Materials teacher and Mrs Meek for making a scooter club so... Thank you:)
