NCS at The Halley Academy
On Tuesday 12th October 2021, representatives from the National Citizen Service (NCS) delivered a presentation to Year 12 students regarding opportunities to develop key skills and participate in an action service project within their communities.
The NCS is funded by the government and offered free-of-charge to students aged 16-17 to further their personal and social development. Georgie and Pam, the NCS reps, were really positive about their own experiences with the programme and several of our students have expressed an immediate interest in taking part.by filling in forms following the assembly.
The scheme will run during half-term and include team-building activities such as Go Ape or indoor go-karting, workshops to instil essential life skills valued by employers and universities, and a collaborative project in which participants identify an authentic need within their community and take steps to address it.
Students have continued to explore NCS opportunities during tutor time, and we look forward to hearing about their adventures and experiences when we return from half-term.
Any Year 12 students who still wish to sign-up can do so by visiting the following website: WeAreNCS.com
Students in Years 11 and 13 had the same presentation in July 2021 and many of them have already registered in interest or signed up.
