The Royal Navy put our prefects through their paces...
Last Friday we welcomed Lt Commander Russ Haines and his team to school to lead a fabulous training day for our student leadership team.
Lt Commander Haines has been working with us for a year in a voluntary capacity on career and enterprise matters, and offered to bring us a full day of training. He started with a really informative presentation on international leadership and the Royal Navy. From then on it was very much a practical day with the Navy's mobile training apparatus, which was similar to a large scale Meccano set!
There was an element of competition throughout the day and various problem-solving tasks. By the end of the day all our prefects agreed that it had not only helped their teamwork, team building and communication skills, but it had also been a lot of fun! RESULT!
