End of year 2018 Asdan Blog

Over the past year 2018, we have completed another different set of lessons as part of our Asdan qualifications. This year we have learned about eating healthy, evaluating our own diets and lifestyle some of us made changes to healthy alternatives to some meals, that we may like so that we can still enjoy them but not over indulge.

We have been out on two very good trips this year learning about both transport, safety and community spirit. The first was the Chappell railway museum here we learned how transport has evolved over the years. The different types of engines and their usage i.e some freight trains still carry animals and people and machinery. Trains have come through a power source switch from coal to electricity.

We also visited the RNLI museum in Clacton from this we learned about how the lifeboat crew work, helping to save lives in danger at sea or answering pager calls to assist others. They also help people to help themselves in the water by use of event days and float to live campaign work. We have produced a poster on the dangers of online dating, as part of our Asdan relationship course. This is because we feel as young people starting to learn about ourselves and what we want and need we need to know about different relationships how they function and the difference and signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships to ensure that we are safe and happy.

Another project we helped with during this year was the Garden project, we worked as a group and tidied the garden, de weeding old plants and planting new plants including our own herb, fruit and veg to make the garden a pleasant area for the community.

So overall as a group we all learned a lot this year, how to make positive changes to ensure we maintain healthy bodies and general health and wellbeing. We have also learned about Teamwork, forming good relationships and supporting each other, this helps us to identify healthy relationships recognise different types of positive relationships and maintain these. Which is the vital key because even as a team if one person thinks they cannot achieve something then how can others help? From this we have learned the answer to that is by working, collaborating setting differences aside in order to understand each other to make it easier , to work effectively as a team bringing different skills together to make a big and positive difference.
