Bradon Forest's Global Citizens visit local Primary Schools

St Sampson’s Church of England Primary School pupils in Year 5 and 6 were pleased to welcome back ex pupils Lauren Enright and Sam Thorne on Thursday 6 October 2016, only 10 weeks after they had left St Sampson's for Secondary School.  

Lauren and Sam accompanied other students along with Assistant Headteacher, Mr Gren Heathcote and Head of Year 7, Mr Kieran Johnson from Bradon Forest Secondary School to give the St Sampson's pupils an assembly on 'Global Citizenship'. 

The assembly included Holly Chapman from Year 11 talking about her recent trip to Iceland and Luke Webster, also a Year 11 student, explaining Bradon Forest’s links with India and his experiences from visiting the country.

St Sampson's pupils must have been most inspired however by Carla Renshaw, a Year 10 student who shaved her hair to raise funds for a World Challenge Expedition to Morocco next summer. Carla and twelve other students from Bradon Forest School are hoping to raise the £1,750 fee for each for the trip with independent and team fundraisers, without relying on hand outs from their parents.

The team, with ex Lydiard Millicent students, Theo Roberts and Megan Cuthbert visited the lovely newly opened Ridgeway Farm Church of England Primary School on Wednesday 12 September 2016, whilst ex Greenmeadow students, James Wood and Bronte Hill went back to their old school for a full school assembly on Monday 17 September 2016. Theo and Megan then went back to their old school, Lydiard Millicent  Church of England Primary School, for the final Global Assembly before the half term break.

The developmental programme, managed by organisers World Challenge Expeditions, will encourage the students to learn about responsibility, leadership, planning, teamwork and both physical and emotional challenges. The expedition is aimed at providing an experience which places students in a strong position to make the most of their future careers.
