Leading The Way In Calderdale
The Calderdale Community Coaching Trust, led by Frank Watene, ran a Rugby League Leaders Award at Calder High last week.
The schools leadership group took part in practical sessions to enable them to gain the confidence to organise and officiate a festival of tag Rugby League to its feeder Primary Schools and over 60 children took part in the event.
The students were keen to carry on their involvement and will now be utilised by the trust and the Calderdale Service Area for future events that require volunteers.
The teachers involved were so impressed by the attitude and commitment of the leaders that they plan to hold another event for the Primary School children before the end of term.
Any other schools interested in running the awards can contact firstname.lastname@example.org who is the Volunteering Co-ordinator for Yorkshire.
