LONDON CITY AIRPORT SUPPORTS CITIZENSHIP WEEK

20/01/2006
Yesterday, Thursday 19 January 2006, Britannia Village Primary School visited London City Airport as part of their Citizenship Week Programme.  Through visiting the Airport the students in year three had the opportunity to learn and understand how to achieve economic well being.

Citizenship Week is a South West Newham Education Action Zone initiative that provides children with an opportunity to operate as responsible citizens, demonstrate good behaviour and positive attitudes.

London City Airport is a key employer in the London Borough of Newham and is recognised as one of Europe’s leading Airports for business travel. London City Airport is becoming a key element to the transport infrastructure in East London. Angeline Barnes, Community Relations Manager for London City Airport felt we could help support Citizenship Week: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the students from Britannia Village.  The success story behind the Airport highlights how the regional economy impacts on the community.  Plus, as an employer we provide a large number of career opportunities and lastly our social responsibility means we are actively involved in providing support to our local community.  This all helps young people recognise how they can achieve economic well being.”

The London City Airport Citizenship Programme involved the students learning about the many different job opportunities that exist at the Airport.  Security Officers, Armed Police Officers, Customer Services Agents and Firemen met with the children to talk about what they do.  So the children could fully understand, they went on a tour of the Airport so that they could see people at work performing different roles.

The children also explored why people have to go to work and what people have to spend their money on. The programme concentrated on living expenses.  The children were then asked what job they would like to do and spent some more time finding more out about the role, which earned them their pay cheque.  They then had to decide how to spend it.  Those that made savings and put money in the bank were presented with a book voucher.

Linda-May Bingham Head Teacher for Britannia Village Primary School said: “The London City Airport Programme was a huge success.  The children who took part were enthused by the visit and their experiences.  It gave them an opportunity to understand the jobs that people do at an airport and the experience of 'earning' money and making decisions about how to spend it.

“I would like to thank the staff of London City Airport for all their support and congratulate them on delivering a programme that excited the children and encouraged them in their personal development.”
