Year 9 students at De Aston School followed an alternative timetable for the day as outside agencies pulled together to deliver workshops about internet safety, crime and anti-social behaviour, alcohol awareness, road safety and arson to the students.

Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board, Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Co-op, Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership and 
Lincolnshire Fire and 
Rescue all came together to deliver the “It’s That Easy” project day.

The event showed how easy it is to fall into, or remain out of, the criminal justice system by providing a range of engaging and interactive sessions for the pupils to help them realise the 
consequences of their life choices on themselves, their families, the victims and the community.

“The ‘It’s That Easy’ day was a fabulous success,” said head of year 9 at De Aston Kerry Rivett.

“The students enjoyed a day which touched on a range of social issues and included a variety of sessions. 

“All of the students were 
actively engaged in all the activities which should 
support them in making the right choices as they make the transition to studying for their GCSE and BTEC qualifications.”

One of the activities was making a short film about arson.

And pictured above are some of those who took part in the film making - Chloe Watson, 
Charlotte Kaur, Niall Westwick and Bradley Swaby, along with representatives from Fire and Rescue.
