C26 – Two Days of Inspiring Experts

As part of our You Give Me Fever expedition, year 9 have had two days of experts offering their experiences to show the human side of our health service. With talks from a hospice nurse, carer and chairperson of a charity, it has been an intense, emotional and humbling experience.

The students asked all the experts pertinent and sensitive questions which will help them retell their stories as part of our final product. Everyone involved exemplified our character traits by: having the courage to ask questions, having integrity when writing their notes and probing the responses further, showing respect to all our experts, showing craftsmanship and quality in their detailed notes. But above all they showed so much compassion particularly in their appreciations at the end of the sessions.

We are so proud of all the students. #WeAreXP

What a fantastic two days students across XP and XP East have had!

On Tuesday, Citizenship students, who have been studying the role of the police, and their year group were involved in 3 seminars from Doncaster Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue. These included Road Safety, Gun and Knives and Exploitation.

After a fantastic Tuesday, things only got more exciting here at XP today…
Students listened to a talk regarding Dog Handling and were introduced to not one, but two real life police dogs! Isn’t Hudson wonderful?
If that wasn’t enough, students were given time to ask all their pressing questions in a Q&A session. Students also experienced all the equipment police officers are trained to use, including riot gear and operating police cars.
A fantastic two days had by all students and staff! #WeAreCrew
