BLESMA Charity Workshop

The school has arranged for a visit from the charity BLESMA, the limbless veterans, to deliver free workshops from veterans to inspire and motivate pupils.  The sessions will last about an hour and will take place at the school bases as detailed below:

Thursday 19th April 2018

9.15am – 10.15am – Louth base

2pm – 3pm – Lincoln base

Friday 20th April 2018

9.15am – 10.15am – Sleaford base

2pm – 3pm – Boston base

Pupils will attend their own base as normal and participate in the one hour workshop. The workshop will consist of a veteran telling their story of overcoming adversity.  After their talk and Q&A, they will assist a professional workshop facilitator in leading a motivational workshop in which the pupils will explore the reality of adversity and how they can become resilient.  The aim of the workshop is:

  • To inspire pupils with the BLESMA members stories.
  • Understand what it is to overcome adversity and promote how to be resilient.
  • Encourage healthy behaviours.
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem, and make individuals realise that we all go through tough times.
  • Improve interpersonal relationships and skills.

Pupils will be well supported by familiar staff in a safe environment.  Please could you let the Re-integration and Support Officer allocated to your child if you are not content for your child to attend the workshop.

It has been fantastic to hear from some staff that have bumped into past pupils recently and/or have been informed about what some of them are now doing.  It has been great to hear of some completing courses and others working.  In all cases pupils have indicated that they have fond memories of their time at the Pilgrim School and offer thanks to the support that was offered to them. 

Go Ape Trip

On Thursday the 11th of October the school embarked on a trip to Go Ape; an activity centre in the Sherwood Pines. All three bases joined together for a day full of adrenaline and excitement. Both the pupils and staff spent the morning mastering the wobbly obstacles and tricky crossings which stretched from tree to tree, the morning was rounded off with everyone soaring through the tree tops on an exhilarating zip line. 

Pilgrim Go Ape!!

Pupils and staff are really looking forward to their GO APE trip! Pupils will have the opportunity to gain confidence as individuals whilst working with each other as a team to navigate and negotiate various challenges whilst suspended at various heights off the ground depending on confidence.
