Lifesaving lessons

Students at King’s Oak Academy learned how to cope in a water emergency during lessons from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

 Lifeboat volunteer Geoff Vian delivered five educational workshops to various year groups.

 Students were taught what to do in the case of a water emergency, learning vital – and potentially life-saving – information. They also enjoyed an opportunity to get hands-on interactive experience with some of the kit that RNLI crew members use on board their vessels. 

 Dan Jackson, from King’s Oak, said: “It was brilliant having Geoff visit. It is really important that pupils know how to keep themselves safe.”
