Students praised for ‘perfect’ behaviour at health event

Pool Academy students attending a health event were praised for behaving ‘perfectly’.

A group of 11 Year 10 children were selected to visit an event last week to learn more about possible future careers in healthcare.

There was information and practical demonstrations at the event in Wilson Way, Pool, to illustrate what it is like to work in sectors including mental health, sexual health and volunteering.

Nikki Grenfell said: “The students were able to look at what jobs are available within the healthcare sector. Those who attended the event were all children who were interested in doing something in the health sector.

“They went around the event getting information, asked questions and had fun too.

“We were invited to take part in a plank excerise challenge to see who could hold the plank position for the longest.

“The students were absolutely fantastic during the event and we got some amazing feedback from the organisers.

“It was a really good event and we are looking forward to attending the next one.”

Fin Rowe, a tutor from Dynamo Healthcare Training Ltd, emailed Nikki after being impressed by the students’ behaviour.

He wrote: “The students behaved perfectly and were great ambassadors to the Academy, many exhibitors fed back about their professionalism.”
