Our Train Ambassadors are a group of Year 10 and 11 students who have undertaken a safety training programme at the Greater Anglia Head Office at Stratford. These young people are available to help support our young train travellers when travelling to and from school. This group have helped in the design of our school Travel Safer Policy and will undertake information sessions with our students to raise young people’s awareness about ensuring that they are travelling safely when using the trains. Our Train Ambassadors programme is in partnership with National Express.
Anglo European School has opened its doors to groups of local senior citizens, to form our Silver Surfers Group. The ‘Anglo Silver Surfers’ group is part of the Ingatestone school’s programme to teach IT skills to the elderly community. The surfers develop their skills in the schools main state of the art computer suite. This programme is co-ordinated by the head of ICT, Mrs. Anne Taylor, together with an enthusiastic group of 6th formers. Tea and biscuits ensure that the surfers all paddle with confidence with the help of the tuition from the 6th form students. One of our sixth formers commented on “how much she enjoyed teaching, and volunteer ICT teaching would be something she would like to do in the future, especially with the older community”. This was backed up by one of the pensioners’ in that “this is a wonderful way to learn new vital skills”. Fun and learning were had by all, as both groups – the OAP’s and 6th formers embark of learning new skills and realising new talents!
Our Litter busters have been commended for their commitment towards helping to keep Ingatestone free from litter. Our Litter busters are a group of students who volunteer to visit the village during their lunch time and help to collect litter which has been dropped.
