Year 10 Bridge Builders

Mrs Jowett and Mrs Empsall took seven Year 10 boys who are taking part in the Bridge Builders’ mentoring programme down to Enterprise Rent-a-Car Bedminster branch for a morning’s work experience.  

The boys were given three vehicles to look at and check over to assess whether they would rent them out again according to Enterprise Rent-a-Car’s strict criteria.  They learned about the importance of safety, customer relations and brand image.  A fantastic lunch was provided, much appreciated by the boys, and this was followed by an afternoon on the racetrack at a local go-karting venue.  There was fierce competition between the boys and their mentors as to who was the fastest on the track, with credit going to Callum Hodgson whose race time was fast enough to compete in the adult race; he came an admirable fourth. 

     It was a fantastic day enjoyed by all and the relationship between the boys and their mentors was deepened even further.
