PSHCE WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOLS
Classroom Medics workshops are delivered at your school and have been designed to engage pupils in the curriculum and enable them to make more informed decisions about their health, career aspirations and life choices. Their workshops cover PSHCE, science, health and sports aspects of the curriculum and present them in a fun and engaging manner as well as providing an insight into career opportunities.
Their patient simulator, Stan, is used in the Classroom Casualty and the Drug & Knife Awareness workshops. He is a living & breathing medical manikin with a heart beat, pulse, sweat, blink & speech. His vital signs are monitored and during the workshop, he is given a range of drugs and is stabbed (electronically). The effects of these are clearly demonstrated as Stan is pushed towards death. Only your students can save him by making the right decisions in the workshop! It is hoped the experience will help young people have the courage and knowledge to make the right decisions if faced with a situation involving drugs or knives

Afri Twin was formed in 2001 to encourage mutually beneficial relationships between schools in the United Kingdom and South Africa. It has since grown from strength to strength and now has over 250 participating schools. Through regular contact, shared projects, reciprocal exchanges of teachers and learners, conferences and workshops, both individuals and schools are substantially enriched.
Afri Twin was the brainchild of Jayne Martin who, at the time, was a South African living in the UK. She felt that bringing together teachers and learners from the two countries could be enormously beneficial. Deeply committed to the project, Jayne continually explores fresh new ways of sharing ideas and experiences and planning joint events.
Through our PSHCE programme both learners and teachers can:
- Learn about other cultures
- Forge new friendships
- Gain a new perspective on life
- Create an international network
