A group of Year 5 pupils from Shireland Hall are taking part in a National Award Scheme called SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award.
This award aims to inspire young people to succeed. Our lucky pupils are joined by pupils from our sister school, George Betts Primary Academy, once a week to take part in special training sessions. This award gives pupils the opportunity to develop character and resilience and prepare for the move up to secondary school. The award includes training on; team building and problem solving; team sports; outdoor pursuits; First Aid; navigation and working in the community to benefit others.
Our pupils have already gained two parts of the award; First Aid and Navigation – so a really big “Well done!” to them.
