Pupils in the Sixth Form started their project with ‘Get Hooked on Fishing’ at the ponds in Northala Fields. They participated in fishing and fitness activities within their local community and worked closely with the team at Northala fields.
We discussed how being outdoors makes us feel and how exercise and leisure activities can be beneficial for our physical and mental health.
Cannegia was fisherman of the day – catching 4 fish… He also overcame a number of personal challenges by holding the slimy fish and maggots.
We are looking for the pupils to become increasingly independent with their fishing skills over the coming weeks.
A huge thanks to Carl, Peter and Michael and the ‘Get Hooked on Fishing’ team for working with our pupils.
