Sussex Coast College saw the second presentation of its kind to congratulate the Prince’s Trust ‘Team 2’ on its achievements this week.
The Prince’s Trust Team programme is a course for young people to uncover hidden talents and to improve skills.
Team 2 undertook a lot of team building exercises and teamwork activities such as rock climbing and kayaking.
The group has also run an awareness raising and fundraising project in support of Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, in particular for the community nursing programme for 11 children in Hastings.
This included a number of events, lots of research, planning and preparation.
The group also helped the St Leonards-based charity, The Sara Lee Trust, move its charity shop to new premises, including designing layout, redecorating, refurbishing furniture and physically moving all the stock.
There was a huge amount of skill and effort required to complete this task and the students were praised by all for their commitment and dedication.
The final presentation took place last Thursday (April 2) to show parents, guardians, staff and dignitaries the work and progress the students have made.
Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex, Peter Field and Hastings Mayor Bruce Dowling attended the event alongside Hastings borough councillors and college governors.
Team members at the presentation ceremony spoke about how they got involved with the Prince’s Trust and their plans for the future after finishing the programme, including offers of employment onto an automotive traineeship, the retail sectors, banking sectors, construction and personal training.
