Army Careers visit for Year 11 girls
Following on from the successful session for Year 10 boys with the Royal Marines last year it was the girls’ turn. Yesterday the Army were in school to run an activity afternoon for Year 11 girls. This was an excellent opportunity for students to develop key skills such as team building, communication and problem solving as part of the school Careers provision.
The girls enjoyed a highly engaging presentation by one of the officers highlighting the careers opportunities available with the Army including job roles, training, qualifications and funding.
Students then split into two groupss and alternated between a classroom session of mental challenges and a physical activities in the Sports Hall.
The students threw themselves into the challenges of the day with enthusiasm and energy and were left feeling truly inspired. Thank you to the Army Careers unit for taking the time to visit Westholme.
