Lots of the children have relatives in the Royal Navy so they were keen to talk to us about it. One of the pupils told us he wants to join the Navy when he’s older so we did a spot of recruiting too!

Sub Lieutenant Barnes said, “Lots of the children have relatives in the Royal Navy so they were keen to talk to us about it. One of the pupils told us he wants to join the Navy when he’s older so we did a spot of recruiting too!”

Head Teacher of the school, Claire Wilson said, “The sailors have done a fabulous job.  They worked tirelessly all day.    Not only have they really helped improve our school grounds, they proved to be great role models for our pupils.  We would welcome them back anytime.”   

Following their contributions to Leesland Church of England Federation, the SEMC students now return to the classroom at HMS Collingwood, as they prepare for their forthcoming assignments as Weapon Engineering Managers at sea.
