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.”


As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
