Smiles As Sixth Formers Enjoy NCS Fun

Sixth form students took a leap into the unknown during a week-long residential visit.

The annual trip sees students from Central Sixth complete the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme at Kingswood Colomendy in North Wales.

Pupils from Moseley Park, Heath Park and Coppice and their teachers spent five days at the activity centre in October, where they completed challenges to build their teamworking and communication skills.

Activities included buggy building, climbing and the daunting leap of faith where pupils scaled a tall platform before jumping off in a bid to hit a hanging target.

Students also had the chance to hone their presentation skills and learn how to make a good impression at interview.

Mr Fitzgerald said: “Pupils were building skills, new friendships and gaining life experiences. The NCS programme exists to engage, unite and empower young people, building their confidence so they can go out and achieve their dreams, no matter where they’re from or what their background is. I couldn’t be prouder of all our young people who thoroughly embraced the experience and had a fantastic time.”
