Students from Ely College were given the opportunity to develop their experiences outside of the classroom last week.
They worked towards their PLEDGES, a set of curricular and extracurricular challenges that students are expected to complete during the course of their time at college.
Students can achieve bronze, silver and gold awards in each PLEDGE category, and last week’s session was focused around the subject of making healthy choices.
Principal, Richard Spencer, said: “PLEDGES were introduced at the College in October and are a vital part of the positive changes that we bring to all schools in the CMAT family.
“Similar to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, PLEDGES help students develop character and responsibility that can be taken into their adult life. They encourage students to get involved with the wider experiences the College has to offer them.”
