LVS Hassocks hosted its first ever Citizenship Day on 15 June, where the focus was to learn about different people in society. A wide variety of workshops were organised to cater for every student and individualised to their own style of learning, which included off-site visits to watch a court session in progress at Lewes Crown Court and a visit to the Police Museum in Lewes, East Sussex.
The school had representatives visit from Sussex Police, HMP Officers, Blind Veterans, RNLI and Magistrates in the Community. Some students participated in a mock trial, others took part in a blind obstacle course. In addition, students took part in the national campaign ‘Send a Friend to School’ to highlight the need for educational for all children around the world.
Leanne Jarvis, Coordinator of PSHE at LVS Hassocks reported on how pleased she was with the first Citizenship Day and is already planning the next one in 2018.
All our visitors gave up their own time to take part in the day for which we are most grateful, as their involvement made the day so special.
