Many thanks to Chris and Johnny from EA’s Youth Service for speaking to our Post-16 pupils this morning about the NW Ministry of Youth.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to become leaders in promoting diversity, tackling discrimination and representing our local communities.

There are also fantastic incentives for joining up, such as travel expenses, training courses, etc.
