A tale of teamwork, resilience and perseverance in Kent



Dunton Green Primary School pupils have loved taking part in Fishing for Schools during the Autumn term.


Students have learnt a wealth of skills, from fishing and conservation to communication and teamwork, all whilst building confidence and self-esteem. Well done to all those who took part for successfully completing their Level 1 Cast Award.



"A calming and engaging activity that allows children to build their confidence and develop new skills."

  • We help develop resilience and determination through learning a new skill that requires patience, focus and expertise.

  • We offer an opportunity to experience a new environment and a new activity.

  • Learning outdoors in nature enhances practical problem solving and team working skills,
