This summer, BHPT will be working in partnership with the National Citizen Service & The Challenge Network (the UK’s leading charity for building a more integrated society)
The NCS will be working with Year 11 & 12 (16-17yr olds) students across the UK in summer enabling them to build skills for work, life and the transition into adulthood. BHPT are delighted to be partners in the first ever Burnham NCS event in August 2015. Students from across Burnham & Slough will join together in an intensive, part residential programme over 2 weeks in the school holidays when they will experience an outward bound activity week in Wales and a residential ‘Alan Sugar- Apprentice type’ week in Reading University where they will have to plan community events, host meetings, use new skills and present their results.
August the 12th is the planned date for the community event in Burnham with a Fun Sports Day themed afternoon on the Green at Burnham Park Hall (indoors if wet) for local children & their families.
We are extremely grateful to Burnham Library and Burnham Park Hall for their support in providing venues for the students to work at and hold their events.
For more information, take a look at the NCS website, www.ncsthechallenge.org and look out for our posters in & around Burnham nearer the time.
