Graeme Dingle Foundation at Hornby High School

Chris Morland —

After another year of running our programmes at Hornby High School, we have again had so many success stories with the students, lots of challenges and tonnes of learning.

The amazing Year 12's who took part in the Stars programme showed just how good they are at being leaders and role models to other students and teachers in the school. They set the example by delivering fun challenging sessions every week to the Year 9 students, supporting everyone during the day out at the Groynes, helping students for Starsopoly and taking part in the community challenge which helped raise money and donate food to a local food bank.

Our twelve specially selected Year 10's for Project K have faced some really challenging situations. Their 20-day wilderness adventure took them to the top of Mount Oxford where on the last day they got stuck due to bad wind and had to make a hasty camp at the top. They showed their dedication to the programme by meeting every week to work on and progress with their goals. Finishing the programme by raising money to fly a plane and completing a three day camp learning about community, culture, and giving back. These amazing young people are going to change the world.
