Visit to Minesweeper HMS Quorn
On Wednesday 19 February, twenty six very lucky pupils from Years 4, 5 and 6 were fortunate enough to embark HMS Quorn, a British Minesweeper currently based in Bahrain. The crew gave the pupils an amazing interactive tour including the opportunity to sit in the Captain’s chair on the Bridge of the ship and firing the water hose whilst dressed in authentic flame resistant clothing and helmets. In addition, the divers let every pupil try out their snorkels and diving gear. The crew’s attentive hospitality was exceptional and provided a truly memorable and educational experience for us all.
