Nine Transition Year students recently travelled to Greencastle Fisheries College where they learned survival at sea techniques. The students completed the certified course which taught them how to cope in an emergency situation at sea, how to correctly use the available safety equipment and also how to deploy and use a life raft. In William Street baths in Derry the students learned what it’s like to be in a life raft and how to right an overturned life raft. The course proved to be a big hit with all involved and provided the students with essential knowledge which could not only save their lives but the lives of those around them should they ever find themselves in an emergency situation on land or at sea.
