Welwyn Hatfield youngsters to be taught Crucial life skills

CRUCIAL Crew is returning to Welwyn Hatfield, with new sessions aimed to teach vital life skills to youngsters making the transition to secondary school.

Lessons on internet safety, and safety in the countryside have been added to the timetable alongside first aid, healthy lifestyle, and anti-social behaviour.

More than 1,000 children aged 10 and 11 will take advantage of the sixth annual Crucial Crew, which starts today (Monday) at the University of Hertfordshire and continues for a fortnight.

They are organised by the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Partnership.

Cllr Clare Berry said: “It’s such an important time for young people, as they look to go to new, bigger schools and face different personal challenges.
