Students practise listening skills

Students who have been practising their listening skills during a three-day course have been awarded a certificate for their efforts.

The Ripple effect is a training programme created by RJ Working for people in Year 9 and 10. Representatives came to Pool Academy lately and held a number of workshops.

One skill they practised was listening. They were taught to make eye contact, have open body language, show empathy and more. They then practised these techniques on each other in role play scenarios.

They were presented with their certificates

Karan England, who helped to co-ordinate the workshops said: “Congratulations on completing the three-day training course. Everybody participated well and get to move forward using the techniques they have learnt.”

Over the three days the students also learned about improving their health and well being.
