In the life of the Army

Two of our students were recently given the opportunity to attend a 4 day army look at life course in Swinerton camp, Staffordshire. Both girls having an interest in a career in the Army jumped at the chance.

Following the training teams initial brief, the girls were separated and placed into different teams, they faced every challenge head on with enthusiasm and resilience. The activities included: teaching some basic military skills in leadership, communication, and team building, as well as more technical skills involving weapon handling and Drill. Both girls boasting their favourite activity being “Patrolling”.

The week ended with both students being awarded a certificate for their efforts throughout the course.

With the buzz still in the air the girls have both applied to join the army’s 6th form college and look forward to a rewarding career in the Army.
