Monk's Dyke Tennyson College holds non-timetable day
STUDENTS from Louth and Mablethorpe got to experience a range of new activities all during school time.
Monks Dyke Tennyson College held a non-timetable day at its two sites in Louth and Mablethorpe.
This was the first time the activity day has taken placed at both sites since the schools merged.
The aim of the day was to get pupils doing things which they would not normally do and for the students to choose the activities for themselves.
Some students did activities on Mablethorpe beach.
There were also subject-led activities including science and art for pupils who do not do art in school time.
Year nine pupils watched a school theatre performance by Zest called Man Up about pressures of boys and girls growing up. Year 11 pupils took part in mock interviews supported by local businesses and organisations such as HSBC, Lincolnshire Police, New Linx Housing and Red Hen Day nursery.
The pupils responded to mock job adverts and applied for the vacancies and volunteers from the organisations came into school to interview them to give then experience of what it would be like in a real situation.
Other activities included health and safety lessons and team building exercises.
