Something fishy!

Students from Kingston class have been learning the intricate skill of fishing this term. They have discovered that fishing has a powerful element of mindfulness, which is therapeutic and stress relieving.

Ben, Chad and Anthony have also found the focus and precision a challenge to overcome, but have all done an amazing job! It has had a positive impact on their well-being and enabled them to work positively as a team.

Chad, a student from the class said “For me, going fishing was a great way to switch off from the daily stress and pressures that life can bring. I was able to just “take in the moment” in the beautiful scenery, the sounds of nature, water flowing, birds singing and clouds floating across the sky.”


Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
