Aims of the project
Aim is to provide support to a worthwhile local cause involving young people
Immediate benficiaries are the children who enjoy the vigour and enthusiasm of young people who are just a little older than themselves. Also, the adult helpers who appreciate the support given to the sessions that they lay on.
Background and goals
The project came about when, in my capacity as Director of Social responsibility, I approached the adults who ran the various sections and asked if they required assistance from our pupils.
The partnership has been around for around 10 years now.
One member of the teaching staff supervises the project.
The feedback from the activity leaders suggest that they are more than happy with the assistance provided by our pupils.
Our pupils' ages are between 16-18.
The partnership children vary in age from 5-14.
Frequency and duration
One evening weekly throughout most of the academic year.
