RNLI Lifeboatsman Visits Year 2

As part of their topic work on the Titanic, Year 2 children were thrilled to welcome Mr Reed to Clifton High School to talk to them about his work as a Royal National Lifeboat Volunteer. The children were eager to learn about some of the hazards the sea can present as well as strategies used to lessen this danger. They were also shown the equipment and clothing Mr Reed uses on rescue missions and watched a film clip of him and his crew in action. The children asked thoughtful questions including “What is the longest mission you have ever been on?” and “Do you have to go out even when it’s not safe to do so?”

Mr Reed kindly presented the children with an information pack regarding the work of the RNLI. We would like to thank Mr Reed for visiting Clifton High School and giving us a valuable insight into the admirable and valuable work of the RNLI.
