Some of our junior children had been invited to RAF St Athan to explore the base and to help them with their confidence and team building skills. They had a fantastic day exploring aircraft in and outside one of the maintenance hangers. One of the planes, a Percival Pembroke actually flew President Richard Nixon to Cuba at the end of the Cuban Missile Crisis in the 1960s.
The children were also able to explore some of the military vehicles at the base. Here are some quotes from the children after making the visit:
'I loved RAF St Athan because it was so brilliant' Kamile
'My favourite part of the day was when we had a photo on the RAF trucks' Imogen
'I liked everything about the day but my favourite things were sitting in the trucks and giving a salute in the end' Jayden
'I loved everything. I had a fantastic day with my friends' Ethan
'When we went to St Athans I enjoyed playing games with Rob because I find teamwork games really fun. When we were all trying to get under the rope it was really hard!' Abigail
