UTC Celebrates First NCS Graduates
Eight UTC@harbourside Year 12 students took part in the autumn term five day residential leadership and team building National Citizenship Service programme.
They returned from this experience buzzing after completing a variety of exciting outdoor activities including rock climbing, Jacob’s Ladder, capture the flag and a tug of war! Most stated that it was a great overall experience where they got to take part in lots of activities they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to do.
The second part of the programme was self-developed community projects that students identify and lead themselves. They chose to bake cakes, sell them in school and use the money to fund a money and awareness raising event in aid of the East Sussex Association of Blind and Partially Sighted People – these have now been completed and the UTC has its first set of NCS graduates!
