He delivered three assemblies in which he explained the importance of working together with others as part of a team.
“It’s good to mix teams and not work with the same people all the time as you get to know other people better. You might find that you work better with people who aren’t your friends.” Menna, 11
Sergeant Mills explained how teamwork was vital in his job role at JSMTC and got the pupils thinking about the parallels of his job and their everyday lives.
“Help each other as much as you can. If you help each other it will always come back and people will help you.” Sgt Liam Mills
Sergeant Mills also ran three focus sessions for pupils currently working on a BSIP. Sergeant Mills set the pupils several challenges, which helped develop key teamwork skills. The pupils had lots of fun working together and getting hands on with some outdoor climbing kit.
“I enjoyed being inside the emergency shelter. I learnt that it could also be used as a stretcher if someone gets injured up a mountain.” Oscar, 10
