National Citizen Service Award
The Catholic High School has been awarded champion school status for their involvement in National Citizen Service (NCS), a government-backed youth programme for teenagers.
The Catholic High School received the status in recognition of the continued support given to the scheme, encouraging more than 50 students to take part in NCS, which helps young people develop a broad range of skills that have life-long value, such as leadership, team working, confidence, independent thinking and community responsibility.
The Catholic High School was awarded the certificate, signed by the Prime Minister, from former NCS graduates at a special ceremony to mark the achievements of each champion school in the region. The graduate presenters, who hosted the event throughout, enthusiastically outlined the positive impact that NCS had on them and what they had gained by taking part.
