Raiders Visit Brook GreenSome Brook Green students had the amazing opportunity of meeting a very respected team member of Plymouth Raiders. Cory Dixon came to visit students at Brook Green on 28th March, he interacted with our students and showed a real positive role model to all.
The students really enjoyed everything about Cory's visit from basketball activities to interviewing him asking him numerous questions about his career and life experiences.
Some were able to to have a one to one photo with Cory as well as having a signed picture of Cory.
A special thank you goes to Cory and to Dave Briggs who made this special visit happen for our Students.
Some quotes from the students who were involved in this visit are
He is so tall I look so small

STEM day visit to Cornwall Aviation Heritage CentreWow! What an amazing day at the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre with Year 11 & 12 students; the fun packed, informative and 'awesome' activity was a special visit arranged by our wonderful Mrs Eglinton for the annual STEM day.
The students were invited to board the various types of aircraft, ranging from 1960's passenger planes to Jet fighters. The volunteer guides (some of them retired pilots) gave very informative tours of each plane, with detailed explanations about the history and mechanics of each one.The highlight though, for many of our students, was the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of the planes and feel like a true pilot, testing out the flying equipment.
As usual, our students made a big impression, a member of staff at the centre said they were 'exceptional, very caring to each other, polite, and it was an absolute pleasure to have us as visitors'. Comments like this always makes me feel very proud to be part of our unique school community and highlights the enriching educational experience students gain from our offsite activities.
