FREE FISH­ING FOR CHIL­DREN

The Field - - Opening Shots -

Schools can ap­ply for free fish­ing tu­ition for chil­dren on­line through the Fish­ing for Schools ini­tia­tive for the first time.

Set up by Charles Jar­dine, the ini­tia­tive is run by the CA’S char­i­ta­ble arm. Last year, chil­dren aged 10-16 from 30 schools were taken fish­ing and given class­room ses­sions linked to the cur­ricu­lum.

“There has been a huge growth in de­mand for our free Fish­ing for Schools cour­ses, which is bril­liant,” said Jar­dine. The new ap­pli­ca­tion process is “a fair and con­sis­tent way of de­cid­ing how our re­sources are used”, he added. Ap­pli­ca­tions for ses­sions in 2019 close on 9 Novem­ber.
