Pupils on the crest of a wave after visit by the RNLI
IT WAS sink or swim for pupils when they were given an introduction to the world of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.
Students from Monks Dyke Tennyson Technology College's Louth and Mablethorpe campuses had time out of normal lessons to learn about everything the RNLI volunteers do, from life-saving to fundraising.
The volunteers gave presentations at the Mablethorpe campus and showed them around a lifeboat.
Year Seven pupils were even given a lesson on first aid and CPR – while students in other years got a different opportunity.
Students in Year Eight went to work with their parents, learnt about careers and picked up some interview skills.
Year Nines learnt about growing up and enjoyed a performance from the visiting Zest Theatre Company.
Year Ten students worked with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust clearing overhanging foliage from Saltfleetby and Theddlethorpe Dunes, as well as litter-picking at Donna Nook.
And Year Elevens met employers for mock interviews to pick up a few tips, while sixth-formers went to Xscape, in Castleford, for paintballing, skiing and some retail therapy.
