Success for students at St James’ Hatcham
Outcome after the roll out of new Ability Programme
Last week we congratulated 4 students from St James’ School in our new school engagement programme, Ability.
The ability programme increases access to new experiences at our riverside centre, introducing a range of exciting activities leading to qualifications and inclusion in our long-term programmes, “Sailability” and “Shipmates”.
They came for a 6 week introductory course to experience Sailing, Rowing, Powerboating and general life on the river. The certificate included discussions about:
- Marine life by the water
- Historical landmarks
The weather held out for us to be able to have spent time mudlarking for artefacts on the shore at low tide too.
They even got a chance to helm one of the new 7.5m keel boats!
‘I liked going on the water. It was a great experience.’
Here at AHOY we provide a range of courses and educational days out. If you’re interested in bringing a group along or perhaps you fancy your hand at becoming qualified on the water, please visit here for more information.
