Our sixth form students have been very busy this half term completing their in-school volunteering.
At JCSC, we expect our sixth form students to be role models to our younger students and as part of this, we ask them to contribute their time to their school community volunteering.
Our current Year 12 and Year 13 students have fulfilled a range of roles and tasks in recent weeks as part of the scheme.
Their volunteering activities have included assisting with classroom support and lesson preparation, as well as providing mentoring and intervention assistance.
Students were also able to share their interests and talents with younger students by helping out at lunchtime and after school clubs such as art club, writing club, code club, drama club, climbing club and music club.
Several students have been litter picking around the school grounds and most recently, some festive helpers have been assisting with the Christmas collection for Amble Food Bank.
Mr Moore, Head of Sixth Form, said: “At JCSC, we aim to support our sixth formers with their personal development as well as their academic goals. Our Sixth Form volunteering and mentoring schemes are an important part of this.
“As well as giving back to the wider school community, our sixth formers have learned new skills to prepare them for higher education and the world of work. I’ve had some amazing feedback about the impact of their volunteering and would like to thank each one of them for their efforts.”
