Pupils join the Army for a day; KINGSTANDING.

PUPILS from King standing's Cardinal Wiseman School were given a taste of Army life at a careers day.

More than 40 year 10 youngsters visited RAF Stafford to try rock climbing, paintballing and cooking as well as ride in tanks and assault vehicles.

Headteacher Martin Jones said: "Pupils even got the chance to try on a bomb disposal outfit which most agreed was very heavy and hot but necessary. "This event was part of the comprehensive careers programme that the school provides in conjunction with Connexions and our careers advisors. The opportunities at Cardinal Wiseman to investigate careers paths are second to none."
