PIONEERS LEARN TO SEE OTHERS IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT

Mrs. Hansen's Prime Time class had a great time doing the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) lesson about self-awareness. They talked about how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them. The students shared about wanting to be who they really are and realizing that people are so much more than what meets the eye. Thank you, Mrs. Ducheon, for designing this awesome lesson to build a positive community at Bidwell!

2018 BRITISH AVIATION EXPERIENCE

Two weeks in U.K. for teenagers age 14-18

This unique two-week course in the U.K., for boys and girls (14-18 years), will give an insight into what it is like to work within the aviation industry. We currently have programmes lasting 2 weeks, 7th July – 21st July and 21st July – 4th August 2018. Students will experience many aspects of life as a pilot, including flying lessons on light aircraft, Boeing 747 simulator, talks with pilots and emergency training with British Airways. Students will also learn about the maintenance and engineering side of the industry by visiting maintenance facilities and talks with professionals.


There will also be visits to aviation museums, an airline headquarters as well as some exciting recreational activities, sightseeing in London and Cardiff. The students’ accommodation will be in the Oxford area convenient to Oxford Airport where the flying lessons will take place.


This is an excellent way to help young people to decide whether they would like a career in aviation and provides a wonderful experience for the participants. They will go home with improved English language, flying experience, a broader outlook on life having spent time with other kids from around the world, not to mention having a lot of fun during the two weeks.


The price is £4,350 (GBP) inclusive of VAT, which includes accommodation, local transport and all activities, excluding flights to London and airport transfers.
