Five SMHS students have just spent five days on a special course aimed at providing them with experience of a range of life skills and ideas for career pathways. The Passing Out Parade took place on Friday 18th January 2019 at Cheshunt Fire station in front of an audience of parents/carers and other emergency service officers. St Mary’s staff members, Mr Wollaston and Mrs Gunning were also present at the parade and came back full of praise for how well the boys had represented both themselves and St Mary’s.  All the boys who completed the week long HFRS Life Course achieved all of the course and their personal goals.

 The Fire Officer who oversaw the running of the course could not talk more highly of the boys and their achievements. 

Congratulations to Divine, Isaac, David, Kayton & Aaron who worked so hard to complete the course, learn new skills and show real determination to be successful! Maybe the Fire Service is worth serious consideration as a future career…?

 

A fabulous week skiing and snowboarding was enjoyed by all as we returned once again this Year to the Austrian resort of St Michael.

Spolit by “the best snow in 25Years” and blue sky skiing, all of the group made fantastic progress. Off piste students enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Thomas and his family, whilst evenings were occupied by range of activities including swimming, bowling, an ice hockey match and the impressive Obertaurn Ski Show.
