Former pupils give Helston College students an insight into Royal Marine life
11:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
There was a warm welcome for two ex students of Helston College Community when they spoke about their training with the Royal Marines.
Dan Wake and former head boy Tom Wallis gave a talk to the post 16 students about life in the forces before answering questions.
Both Dan and Tom studied A-levels and went on to gain university degrees before deciding to join the Royal Marines as officer candidates.
A number of Helston Community College students are hoping to join the military and they were able to get first hand information from the pair.
After the event students reported that it had been “really interesting and informative“ and “reinforced my decision to join the Royal Marines as an officer.”
One of the girls said: “While I can’t join the marines, it gave me more information on military life.”
