Catch of the day

As part of one of our pathways, a group of students regularly takes part in extracurricular activities as they work towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s (D of E) Bronze Award.

The D of E has four sections: skills, physical, volunteering and an expedition. As part of the skills section students have been attending Get Hooked on Fishing, a charity based in Northolt. During these sessions they learn various skills and develop, or further develop, a degree of mastery in the basic skills needed for fishing. As well as the latter it contributes to students’ mental well-being through being in a natural environment with peace and tranquillity around them.

On their latest trip the group was joined at the site by reporters from both The Times and The Angling Trust, who have since contacted us to say our students “exhibited  true determination and were co-operative, helpful, respectful and polite.” Well done, everyone!

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
