Year 9 EMPOWER Day - PMNW

Year 9 really enjoyed their crime safety day, they watched a play on the consequences of anti- social behaviour, met police dogs who search prisoners for mobile phones and contraband, looked at the work of the London Fire Brigade and met an ex prisoner who had made something of his life after a conviction.

The day was about making the right choices in life and how society deals with people who make the wrong choices. Students experienced what is was like to be in prison as they took a look at what a prison cell looked like and spoke to prison officers who currently worked in prisons across the country. The day was invaluable for the students and made them think about crime and punishment.
