Year 8 have taken part in an exciting ‘First Responder Day’ event spanning over two days, Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th October.
This is the first time this type of day has been organised where outside agencies from emergency, responsibility and safety services come in and deliver sessions to the whole year group. Having secured the British Heart Foundation, Nottingham Fire Service, St John’s Ambulance, the RNLI, Road Safety and Public Transport it was always going to be an action packed day.
This proved to be right - the sessions were fantastic! Interactive, fun and informative. All the providers commented on how well behaved and mannered everyone was, but also said how engaging and responsive they all were which is brilliant.
There has also been an amazing response from the pupils themselves regarding this event, including: ‘it’s been a fun and interactive day’, ‘it has been enjoyable and something different where I have learnt a lot’ and ‘I now feel a lot more confident if I was in certain situations that we talked about today’.
