Last year our Year 10 students embarked on a project with a charity called First Give, their aim was to ‘build a new generation of engaged, skilled young people giving their time and talent to improve the lives of others’; to ignite a social conscience. Essentially the project involved helping local charities, as well as developing key skills such as teamwork, leadership and public speaking. Several students presented on the day about their charity and a panel of judges decided on the winning presentations, each of the winning groups were presented with a cheque to give to their charity
