Careers Presentation from The Royal Marines
We were joined by Danny and Harry from the Royal Marines for a careers presentation. They came in to speak to a packed room full of Y9 students about their time as commandos. The Royal Marines are one of the elite fighting forces of the world, so it was impressive to listen to the training these two young men had gone through and the sort of experiences they had: from Afghanistan to dealing with pirates and people smuggling. There were great questions from the audience. Harry was able to confirm that yes, “young women can now apply and join the Royal Marines; in fact, a woman is just about to complete her training to become the first female officer to wear the green beret”. Who knows, perhaps, we will have some future Royal Marines from Bridlington School.
