Year 7s gaining practical skills and confidence on the road
This is the fifth year that we have been able to offer Bikeability cycle training to our students. It is fully funded by HCC Road Safety Team and is carried out by Pedal Power Training who were fantastic. Thirty Year 7s have been on the course this week!
Pedal Power took out 6 groups of cyclists over the week with some fairly intensive training to achieve Level 3. This is training which develops skills for cycling on complex, busy or fast roads and junctions, sometimes with heavy traffic. It aims to give everyone the skills and confidence for all types of cycling. We are one of only a few Hampshire secondary schools that support and facilitate Level 3 training.
It has been a really rewarding few days — and quite exhausting, both in the number of miles ridden and the amount of concentration required!
Here is a short video from Bikeability on Level 3:
Not much 'silence in court' last week when the first session of our new Mock Court Club was launched! Another fabulous Eggar's Experience offering, this club is devised and run by Year 7s for Year 7s. https://t.co/I1HPSwALsv #WeAreEggars https://t.co/2Fx5eo29Dy 6:09 PM - 20 Jan 2022
At this month's Lecture Club, there was some thoughtful debate on the difficult topic of eating disorders. Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten gave a heartfelt account of her own personal experience. https://t.co/swU1qbDbPh #WeAreEggars https://t.co/aX0UzdRXf0 2:36 PM - 19 Jan 2022
