An excellent two hours with a qualified instructor who had this to say about the group:
‘Thanks for today’s session,
Fantastic group of kids they are a credit to your school.’
Cycling Operations Co-ordinator
Betteshanger Sustainable Parks
This is the first of three sessions they have to develop their skills and time trial results. As part of their Unit 10 Land-Based Adventurous Activities, it allows all the students to eventually achieve a ‘Distinction’. Who said learning can’t be fun?
We were invited to the council chambers for a series of presentations with question and answer opportunities regarding various topics: how the different levels of government work; crime statistics in Thanet and the police response; Alan Faulkner from the fire service discussed young driver responsibility; the importance of waste disposal and related council projects and, finally, how various offices link together for a multi-agency response.
Students all had individual microphones and were a credit to the school with some interesting and very pertinent questions. Watch this space for a project they are going to get involved in leading on from this entertaining and informative session.
