Panathlon event is an inspiration to students

We are proud to host and support the Panathlon Challenge, a mini-paralympics, for primary and secondary students with special needs.  In our fifth year working with Panathlon we were delighted to host the primary event recently and are pleased to welcome Emily Treweek, Year 13 student, to report on the event.

This is the fourth Panathlon I have been involved in and every time I am blown away by the enthusiasm of both the leaders and the children that attend. At the October event, four teams from Mowbray School took part and later in the afternoon another Panathlon was held at the Dales School in Morton-on-Swale.

NCS students are community champions

Spearheaded by Sandra Johnson, Assistant Headteacher, the National Citizen Service (NCS) is open to all 16 and 17-year-olds in England and helps students build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and meeting new friends. It runs in the spring, summer and autumn, bringing together young people from different backgrounds and encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication. Richmond School is privileged to hold Gold Championship status for its work in embracing and promoting the NCS scheme, the only school in Richmondshire and Hambleton to hold this honour.

Joe Hughes and Nick Chapman were two of 63 Richmond School students who took part. Their group of fourteen included nine Richmond School students. Here they tell us about their experiences and why they believe NCS is a great project to get involved in.
