Throughout this year, our Year 4 pupils have worked towards the Archbishop’s Youth Trust Young Leaders award. They learnt how to be leaders and identified a project in the community that they would like to improve. The wanted to “Be the change that you want to see”. They chose to improve the Green outside school, and so with the support of the Parish Council they have removed litter and weeds, planted new bulbs, refurbished the woodwork, and installed new nesting boxes. They really have made a big difference!
In recognition of their great work they were presented the Young Leaders Award by the Bishop of Selby, and by Ben Fry the morning presenter on Minster FM at a grand ceremony at Monk Fryston Hall. This was a lovely occasion and it was fitting to celebrate their achievements.
