Pupils from St Michael’s Primary School left their classrooms for the day when the Life Education Centre (LEC) Bus came to visit.
The specially equipped mobile classroom provides an unforgettable multi-sensory experience for the children and runs alongside health education work in school.
The LEC programme teaches children about the wonders of their bodies, how to take care of them, and how relationships, food, drink, drugs and other substances can affect them.
“I liked the Life Bus because it taught us about life and good choices,” said Year 6 pupil, Phebe Budd.
The focused, interactive programmes are designed and varied to match each age group and ability, and are presented by a specialist Educator.
“The programme was very informative and the children were all engaged with the activities,” said Mrs Lafferty, Y5/6 teacher. “It also gave the pupils an experience of learning in a different way.”
