Walk to School Week 21st - 25th May 2018

Ark Little Ridge is joining other local schools to celebrate walking to school.  The challenge is for everyone in Hastings to walk to school every day next week during Walk to School Week and make a real difference to children’s happiness and wellbeing.  The school with the highest percentage of children walking will receive a trophy and 5 free lunchtime activity sessions led by Active Hastings.  So come on…….… get walking – it’s less stressful than trying to park!!

Working Ways Ambassadors

Our School Ambassadors attended the latest ‘Working Ways’ meeting, organised by the Hastings Education Futures Trust.  This aim of these sessions is to discover similarities and differences between the world of work and the world of education.  This week, our Ambassadors were looking at the world of Finance and visited Lloyds and Nat West. 

‘We met at South Coast College where we were given refreshments before visiting the banks.  We were allowed to go behind the scenes and speak to the Branch Managers, asking them about what it was like to work in a bank and what qualifications you needed.’

‘I loved learning about bank security.  If someone tries to steal any money, orange paint will be spilt onto the thief so that Police can identify them.’  Leo Gasson

‘I had no idea how a bank worked behind the scenes, it was really interesting seeing all the offices and especially the safe which had huge bolts to work it.’  Ruby Morton Davage
