'Safety First' Day With Fire Brigade, Ambulance Service and Police
The Police, Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade delivered a 'Safety First Interactive Day' to Year 8 at HCACP recently.
The day included virtual sessions on road safety, knife crime, arson, and child sex exploitation, and were all well received by both staff and students.
The presenters enjoyed the day too, with one writing to say: "I wanted to thank you and your colleagues for all your efforts yesterday. I hope the staff and pupils enjoyed the day as much as we did."
What Year 8 students said...
"I found the one about arson the most useful because it isn't usually talked about."
"It was good, the PowerPoints were very informative. Arson was the most useful because I didn't know much about it."
"They helped a lot, and they give you information."
"I thought it was very educational and helpful."
"I think it was a great idea, it shows us and teaches us about what to do during a stabbing or fire."
"I found the fire safety one most useful, but it would be a lot more effective if we did it again in person."
Students said that other issues they would like to know more about included mental health, peer pressure, cancer, and sexual harassment at school.
Thank you to all the presenters for their valuable work with our students.
