On Friday 17th January 2020 Denton Community College replaced our usual day with a range of specialist lessons as part of our annual Life Long Learning PSHE Drop Down Day! The day utilises a range of specialist lessons delivered through a mix of external agencies and internal staff in order to cover a range of important PSHE and wider community issues.
Topics were chosen to compliment the age of each student, topics for this year’s event included but were not limited to:
- First aid training,
- Knife crime awareness,
- The dangers of online gambling,
- Hate crime awareness
- Sex and relationships education.
The Drop Down Day allows the college to draw on the experiences of trained professionals and those with lived experience to educate and inform our young people about the wider community and the world they live in.
This day also gives students the opportunity to learn in new and exciting ways, challenging themselves to communicate with new people and learn life essential life skills, becoming well-rounded individuals.
