Young carers reach new heights.

Our 8 young carers took a trip to Mile End Climbing wall on Thursday, fully funded by GoForIt Grants. They experienced free climbing, bouldering and rope climbing. The smiles were a constant feature on their faces from the minibus ride there until they left the school premises at the end of the day. It was really nice to see them encouraging each other to climb higher and where to place their hands and feet for the next steps. They made and shared memories that some will never forget. One student said ‘Thank you for this opportunity, I know sometimes I dont deserve it but i’m so grateful that I am here,’ Another stated ‘This has been so fun, I have overcome my fears of heights today, are you proud?’ The answer to that is,​ ​ of course, we are proud of each and every one of you!
