11th May 2019. One of our NCI volunteers visited Bournemouth Collegiate School to talk to the pupils about the work of the charity.
The topic for the kindergarten class this half term was “How different people help us in the community” and they were visited by Joanna Tasker, who is a National Officer with the National Coastwatch Institution charity, based at the NCI station at Hengistbury Head.
The children found the visit very insightful and learnt about the work of the NCI which, as a Charity, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and is made up entirely of volunteers. Learning about the dangers along the coast, on the beach and at sea, the children discovered how a Lifeboat gets sent to an Incident and that if you see anyone in danger then you must dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
