It’s been another successful term for HRCST’s students with special educational needs – including the post-16-year-olds from Curnow School, seen here enjoying a Thursday morning session at Calamansack.
“Sailing with HRCST is one of the highlights of their year,” said Curnow School group leader Neil Pellow-Firth. “The sessions provide the students with a unique opportunity to develop not just their self confidence and teamwork skills, but also their understanding of water safety. The HRCST team is amazing. Our students and staff love every minute of the experience.”
