Twenty of our Y8 pupils are currently participating in the #Iwill Campaign which is run by the MFC Foundation. The project, which runs for 13 weeks, looks at social action and emotional and healthy well being.
On Friday 6th July, Mr Carey, Assistant Headteacher, and five Y8 pupils from the Campaign group gave a presentation at the “Youth Social Action in the North East – Unlocking the Region’s Potential” Event in Gosforth.
The event was organised by the Virgin Money Foundation who support the talents of young people in the North East who are striving to make changes and shape their communities. The aim of the event was to bring together colleagues from across the North East, working with young people in Health and Social Care, Education, the Voluntary and Community Sector and Business to:
- celebrate the brilliant activity already taking place in the North East region and highlight case studies
- find out more about the benefits of youth social action
- network and look at opportunities to work together and/or opportunities for the young people they work with to get experience in another sector.
The five pupils (Kimberley Morris, Michael McGuinness, Macy Pearce, Abigail Phillips and Bethany Kynaston) and Mr Carey spoke about youth social action at Trinity and the #Iwill Campagain. “The students gave a fabulous presentation to their audience and were a credit to Trinity”, said Mr Carey.
