Sport students take on NCS adventure
October 18, 2019
Our Sport students embarked on their NCS adventure this week, as they headed to Kingswood Dearne Valley for an action-packed residential trip.
Over the five days, the students took part in various activities from laser tag, aeroball, zip wire and archery to mini Olympics, water sports and various other team building activities!
The NCS (National Citizen Service) is a programme aimed at young people, aged 15-17, giving them the opportunity to take on new experiences and meet new people. For some young people, it is a chance to be inspired and find their passion. Students come away with a whole host of new skills and newfound confidence. It also allows them to boost their application for university and employment, whilst having fun doing it.
Head of Department for Sport, Clare Webster, commented, “I am really proud of the students for the hard work and effort they have put into each task this week. This trip has been an invaluable learning experience for them, allowing them to come together to work effectively as a team and to develop a number of transferable skills, which will support them in their future careers.”
All of the students that attended the trip will now take part in the next stage of their NCS programme, as they plan and deliver a social project. The students will take on the challenge and create an idea that will make a difference in the local community.
