Before the Christmas holidays last year the year 11 Prince’s Trust Group raised £200 by selling Santa hats and badges to pupils and staff.
Josh, Cailan, Kieron and Hannah put a great deal of work into organising the sale and decided that any profit they made would be donated to the local Salvation Army.
Julie, a member of the Salvation Army, came into school to deliver a presentation about the work they do locally and was delighted to receive the cheque from the pupils.
Beamish ‘Go Wild’
During March, our year 9, 10 and 11 Princes Trust pupils had the privilege of attending the Prince’s Trust’s Achieve day at Beamish Wild. This day was organised and funded by the Prince’s Trust as a way of recognising the achievement of pupils from across the North East who are working towards the PDE (Personal Development and Employability skills) Achieve qualification.
The Venerable Bede pupils very much enjoyed taking part in Archery, Den Building and Create Stack activities. Through these activities pupils developed their communication and team building skills as well as putting into practice endurance and resilience.
“I really enjoyed the activities. I also enjoyed working together in a team” Ben.
“…I loved the stacking, it was very scary but it was the most fun I have ever had!” Marshall.
