Students showing they care for their community

Students showing they care for their community

“We want to be positive role models…and inspire the next generation.”

Four of our Year 10 students’ have put together a bid for the Shelton Speaks project.

The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner is offering £20,000 to improve levels of community safety in Shelton.

Our students’ bid is called Shelton United and they need your help.

Working with Engage Communities, Rohaan; Kamran; Sufyaan and Ibrahim are bidding for weekly sports sessions to be held at Stoke-on-Trent College. They have worked out how much is needed for coaches to run the sessions and for venue hire.

They also want to run Level One Award Development Community Activities for Youths at Risk.

The students’ have consulted with young people in the Shelton as part of their bid to gauge what would benefit the community and have a powerful impact. Their research found that some young people have negative influences in their lives and want to take part in activities with positive role models.

They want to run sports sessions for people aged 8-19 who may be at risk at taking part in anti-social behaviour.

Should Rohaan; Kamran; Sufyaan and Ibrahim be succesful, they will start the sessions straight away and have already made plans to ensure all activities are Covid safe.

A huge well done to all four students’ who have the wellbeing of their community in their thoughts.
