West Bromwich Campus BOOT CAMP!
8th Jul 2016
West Bromwich piloted its first “Boot Camp” this month in a collaboration of efforts between West Midlands Police, West Midlands Fire Service, Sandwell Council , Sandwell Community School and the following 3 primary schools:
• Hall Green Primary school
• Penny Hill Primary school
• Yew Tree Primary school
The overarching aim’s being to:
1. Raise Aspirations
2. Improve Confidence and Self Esteem
3. Prevent Entry into the Criminal Justice System (either as offender or victim)
To do this the boot camp has included a variety of activities to help and encourage the children selected to develop in areas such as discipline, confidence, respect and team work. Our aim for them was to encourage every child to be the best they can be and develop the characteristics and skills that will help them succeed in life.
The boot camp will be concluding on Friday 15th July 2016 with a presentation ceremony at West Bromwich Fire Station showcasing a DVD of the activities and work undertaken by the children as well as awarding the participants with certificates of their achievement.
