Neston Children Get Shipshape With the Navy

Published: 16th October 2017 08:55

School children at Neston Primary spent a morning with the Royal Navy recently, as part of the school's STEM Polar Explorer Programme.

Three members of the Royal Navy visited the school to talk about their careers: Chief Petty Officer Paul Tock was accompanied by Matt (A Navy Physical Training Instructor) and Martin (A Leading Navy Chef).

The pupils were keen to hear about a career within the Navy. Chef Martin shared some tales about the different kitchens on board ships, catering for up to 1700 people at a time and some of the many bonuses of being in the Navy. Martin demonstrated his impressive knife skills while making a mouth-watering meal of meatballs and pasta. The finished meal was delicious.

The group of 10-11 year olds spent a morning enjoying fun and games with the Physical Training Instructors (PTIs), who taught them about the importance of healthy eating and keeping fit.

Year 6 pupil Abby Barnes said: "The visit from the Navy was great. It inspired us to travel the world, think about different careers and to work hard at school."

Teacher Suzanne Hopkinson-Jones said: "The pupils were ‘put through their paces' by Paul and Martin - training them like Royal Marines. It was tough work, but great fun.

"he children responded with great enthusiasm and we hope it will inspire them to consider a range of career paths in the future."

In letters of thanks to CPO Tock, the children highlighted how much they enjoyed the visit.
