Year 13 pupils attended a series of talks on Thursday afternoon to equip them with knowledge and understanding to help them manage their finances, health, and wellbeing in the wider world.
A speaker from Plymouth University’s Finance Team gave valuable advice about managing finances and budgeting. This talk was followed by a carousel of impactful sessions about healthy relationships and sexual health, led by The Zone, and alcohol, drugs and addiction awareness with Five Lives.
The sessions were very well received by pupils:
‘I found Vince’s talk about drugs very moving and personal, which I feel and hope resonated with many in addition to the other talks. They were all very good speakers and I felt having those with personal experiences was extremely effective’
‘I found the personal stories incredibly inspiring and moving’
‘The info on student finance was very useful’
