In January, Abbie & Stacey from our branch took 40 children from Castleside Primary School on a school trip to the Locomotion Museum in Shildon.
As the pupils from Castleside are currently learning about space, we arranged a visit of the museum where they were able to see Tim Peak’s spacecraft.
All the children thoroughly enjoyed the day! There was a special exhibition allowing them to learn all about the space mission that Tim Peak encountered and some even got to try on his space helmet.
We find working with our the school incredibly rewarding as making a difference in our community and supporting education is vitally important to us at the Consett branch and we hope to be able to arrange future trips.
