Armed forces activity day

As a school working in partnership with many MoD links, we wanted to celebrate armed forces with our MoD students. On Monday the 19th some of our MoD ambassadors were a part of putting up our armed forces flag, which was flown at the front of the school for the entire week, to support armed forces day.

To celebrate the event, we organised through our Links with the RAF for Corporal Andrew Oldham and Corporal Ellie Williams to come in and put on hourly activity sessions in the school gym for our MoD pupils in years 7, 8 and 9. They activities are called Mobile Team Challenge (MTC) and the activities are designed to practise, encourage and develop Teamwork, Leadership & Communication (TLC).

Corporal Andrew Oldham stated ‘It was great to see the pupils developing together as a team to complete the tasks.  We witnessed the ‘birth’ of some natural leaders and all of the participants really engaged with the challenges; resulting in some fantastic overall team achievements.’

The pupils’ feedback was fantastic. Students said they really enjoyed the activities and would love to do it again! We cannot thank the RAF enough for their continued support and we are so grateful to Corporal Andrew Oldham and Corporal Ellie Williams, for bringing such engaging tasks to our students.
