Respect Project

respect_project1Alex, Megan, Millie and Wiktoria from Tabor Academy were recently treated to a specialist programme of activities and team building exercises as part of the ‘Respect Project’, run by the Essex Boys & Girls Clubs.

The students were chosen to attend two activity days to be assessed for an eight week evening course to enhance self-respect, personal relationships and the challenges that may arise, and gain an understanding of team work, leadership and communication skills amongst others.

Upon completion of the initial stages, they were then given the opportunity to attend a seven-day residential in the Lake District with their newly found friends and colleagues from Essex Boys & Girls Clubs, Alec Hunter Academy and Notley High School to encounter further challenges and activities including mountain climbing!

All the students that completed the eight week course and residential were rewarded with a special graduation ceremony and were presented their Asdan certificates and a commemorative framed photograph.

Proud parents and staff attended the graduation ceremony on Monday 1st February to see the students receive their awards and hear their opinions of the course and what it meant to them. Congratulations.
