We were pleased to welcome the “No Way” Trust team into school recently. The Trust is a national educational charity with a core aim of raising awareness among young people about the causes, consequences and penalties of crime.
Our students had a fun and informative day whilst hopefully gaining skills on how to stay safe, deal with life challenges and lead law abiding and positive lifestyles. Student Jenny Piercy said ” It was an awesome experience and would go through it again any time, as I absolutely loved it”.
The volunteers who came into school to deliver the sessions were very complimentary of our students. Phil Wilson, Director of Community Liaison, said “The students in Year 9 were a credit to themselves as well as the school and it was good to see all abilities rewarded in the closing session, which just goes to show that with a little encouragement and a unique approach, everyone can benefit. Let’s hope that some future difficult choices and decisions the students will invariably have to make have been made just a little bit easier knowing the consequences that could await them”.
