Visit to the Army Reserve Centre 22/10/21
On Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th October, Year 8 students visited the Army Reserve Centre in Southall, organised in conjunction with Education Development Trust, to gain an insight into various curriculum areas related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The students engaged in various exercises, from taking part in a talk about the various career opportunities in the Army to completing team building activities which used their critical thinking and coordination skills required to work as a team. They learnt and carried out basic first aid procedures by checking for a pulse in their arm, applying a bandage to a wound, before learning how to stop a catastrophic bleed!
Students also developed their cooking skills by making pizzas, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The whole experience allowed the students to gain a greater insight into the transferable skills that can be applied at college and in their later life.
