Students at a Lyme Regis school learnt the value of teamwork at an employability day.

The programme for the year 10s was run by the Army Outreach Team and consisted of five enrichment lessons.

The students took part in two outdoor team building activities, a session on human rights, international law and global conflict, a lesson focussing on employment skills and a problem solving task.

Mike Holding, head of work-related learning and enterprise, said, “The weather was fantastic, the kids were exemplary and the army were full of praise for the ‘best state school they have ever worked with whilst running these sessions.’

“We would like to say a huge thank you to Major Arthur Norman-Walker MBE and his team for such an incredible day.”
