Elite Training Squad half way through regime
It's four weeks down and another four to go for the staff and students testing themselves to their limits as part of the Elite Company military training scheme.
More than 20 staff and students have signed up for the tough boot camp style course which is being run during Session 4 by Vice Principal Tony Segalini.
He said: “Elite Company is a military type training regime based loosely on the Parachute regiments ‘P’ company which is a tough course to prepare soldiers for parachute training and gives them that elite status.
“The aim is to put volunteers through a series of extreme physical tests so that they are challenged mentally and physically.
“There will be a series of tests at the end which will include Gym tests, stretcher races and a long distance run/march.”
Anyone who completes the test will win the coveted Elite Company badge.
Business Teacher Alexandra Allan said: “I chose to take part in Elite training firstly to improve my physical fitness and enhance my self discipline by pushing through personal barriers.
“But most of all, teamwork with my colleagues has strengthened and it has been great fun.”
