The Wise Owl Trust takes on two full time instructors.

The Wise Owl Trust of primary schools in Manchester are so pleased with Commando Joe’s – they’ve taken two of our instructors on full time. See what Executive Principal Sophie Murfin has to say…

“When we first brought Commando Joe’s in to our schools, my main aim was to give our pupils some really strong role models. From my first meetings with the instructors, I found they epitomised good manners and respect and I wanted to instil that in our children. It’s been amazing what an effect that’s had, totally different from anything we could have done with them.

“The children love the fact the instructors come in with their combat trousers on, that it’s something different and exciting. They all wait with excitement when our Commando Joe empties his van to see what he’s got in store that day.

“We started off with one instructor doing two days a week, mentoring one-to-one and doing physical activities with classes. But it’s worked so well we are going to be employing two instructors full-time from September across our schools.

“At first they were offering mentoring and physical activity sessions. Now, they also work with some of our pupils who face the biggest challenges, building the resilience to handle whatever life throws at them and help them back into the classroom. It’s already having a massive impact with half of the pupils taking part already making it back in to full time classes.

“As a school, we’ve really worked together with Commando Joe’s and I think that’s made a massive difference. We include our instructors in everything, they are really part of the fabric of the school. I think the main benefit we’ve seen is that our pupils, even those facing real challenges outside of school, now feel that they can succeed in life.

“We’ve already signed up to the next school year when they are launching a new Character scheme, with interactive lessons based on great explorers such as Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Tim Peake. I know our pupils can’t wait to get started!”
