This term, the Year 9 bubble have teamed up with West Leeds Activity Centre to give our young people some fantastic opportunities as a well done for all their hard work and effort. WLAC aims to get students out of the classroom and into the outdoors with a whole host of group activities that encourage team building. From climbing the high ropes together, and competing as a team across the assault course, they will start to build confidence and grow in their abilities and team working.

On Tuesday 25th May, a group of students from the year group were nominated by their form tutors to have a day taking part in the different activities at WLAC. The criteria to be nominated related to the students’ engagement, attitude and effort on the Young Leader Application day just the day before, and the lucky students were announced live in classes at the end of the day. There was a real buzz in the corridor as students worked tirelessly to impress, bringing an extra level of commitment and excitement to the afternoon.

The students left school early to ensure a full day was spent taking part in the various activities such as wall climbing, archery, go karting, motor biking and learning bush craft skills. It was fantastic to be able to give the students an instant reward for their work, and this was only emphasised when we got to see how much the students enjoyed the day.
