Community Leadership Project

20 hardy year 10 students braved the 'Arctic' conditions of The Lake District to complete the Community Leadership Project in association with Wakefield District Housing. They worked collaboratively with De Lacey Academy and Crofton Academy.  They climbed Sheffield Pike and slept in tents in 30cm of snow.  They also completed gorge walks and numerous team building activities. The culmination of the week was a self-prepared presentation all students gave to dignitaries from the Outward Bound trust and WDH. The students, as ever, did themselves proud and at least two have been invited to complete a fully funded 19 day life skills course in the Summer. Thanks to Miss Hall for being epic as ever.
