STUDENTS from the GFM once again took their learning outside the classroom as part of our emerging Community Curriculum, aimed at unlocking potential for Gosport learners and their futures across the town.
Over 700 students from across year 7 at both Bay House and Brune Park, embarked on a day of activities last Friday (Jan 17) across the town.
Highlights included a Water Safety and Life Saving skills presentation and practical session from the RNLI, a treasure hunt at Fort Brockhurst provided for by local English Heritage volunteers. Some students worked with local community organisations to support a Social Action activity across Stanley Park, a ‘live’ Ready, Steady Cook style cooking demo from Aramark Catering and all students Dropping Everything and Reading for literacy sessions support by own own well established libraries.
The day was part of our GFM Community Curriculum, a project working in partnership with local business and community organisations to offer students opportunities which will help boost confidence, resilience and aspirations for their Gosport Futures.
“Friday was an exceptional day for our schools and community. Via our Community Curriculum students are able to engage with the community organisations, businesses, culture and heritage of our town.
“Today was the perfect example of our schools working in harmony with the rich resources available in Gosport to help unlock the wonderful potential of our young people.”
