Prince’s Trust – Xscape Trip

We’d like to congratulate Alfie, Ian, Brandon, Brad, Connor, Raki and Colin for their hard work and success on the Princes Trust XL Programme which they have been working towards for a number of months.

To celebrated their success we attended a celebration day at XSCAPE Castleford where the students enjoyed games of bowling and a lovely lunch. The day was rounded off with a presentation ceremony where each young person was given a certificate and even a little Easter treat!!!!!  A BIG well done to Colin also for winning an Easter egg for getting the most strikes out of all the teams!  Well done boys!

Over the last few months the pupils were participating in a Health and Fitness module.  This includes practical aspects such as the gym and football, as well as studying about nutrition, healthy living, drugs awareness, sexual health etc.

The target for the young people is to gain a Prince’s Trust Level 2 qualification, as well as learning a lot about themselves.  The physical aspects require determination and stamina and the football sessions encourage team work and achieving goals with other people.
