Leader of the Pack
Thirteen Year 9 students successfully completed the Young Community Leaders project led by CHILYPEP. After 13 weeks of hard work and dedication, the young people had a sharing event in the evening. Invited guests included community leaders, parents and carers, and the Lord Mayor.
The Young Community Leaders’ ambition is to continue working in the community to improve outdoor spaces and tackle anti-social behaviours. The Lord Mayor and all the guests were impressed with the presentation and leadership skills the young people displayed. Subsequently, the Lord Mayor has invited these amazing young people for an afternoon tea at her chambers.
These leaders will now be supported to train others and CHILYPEP are interviewing for a project worker, and three of our students have been invited to be part of the interview panel. This group of Y9s have represented the academy well and made all associated with HHA proud!
