"Whether its the port coach trips, the horse display on the field, the Tides project, the boat building, Ferry trips, aviation workshops and the Y6 transitional resources that we've used (and still do) to help children imagine themselves in the future and explore jobs / careers....your linking students, volunteers, and business with schools and kids, provides great opportunities...."
