Children learn skills for life

CHILDREN at Gracefields School in Fishponds are proving it's never too early to learn life skills.

The youngsters visited the Lifeskills Centre in Bristol, a realistic village with houses, shops, a railway and a beach where they learnt to deal with dangerous and difficult situations.

Headteacher Elizabeth Morgan said: "Our visit to the Lifeskills Centre is an important part of the curriculum at Gracefield School. The children learn valuable lessons about safety in everyday life and always enjoy the interactive settings. The volunteers help make the experience an interesting and informative one."

The centre, based at the Create Centre in Hotwells, is a safety education charity and is looking for volunteers to guide small groups of children through the different scenarios. Sessions run from 9.40am-noon and 12.40-3pm weekdays in term.
