RASA Student Wins Youth Sports Trust Award

13th November 2015

Caitlin Griffith along with 7 other HSLA Leaders joined Active Fusion to help deliver their Connecting Communities project Actively-eat-y.  The project was piloted over 12 months and Caitlin and the other leaders delivered physical activity games afterschool at Grange Lane and Pheasant Bank Academies.  The project was aimed at encouraging families to develop their knowledge of Health and Well Being and for the students to develop their Higher Sports Leader skills.  The project was funded by the Youth Sports Trust, The Peoples Lottery and The Health Lottery.

At the end of scheme the Youth Sports Trust organised a Celebration Evening that took place at the House of Lords to showcase the fantastic work that had been done in the 12 Connecting Communities Programmes across the country.  The event was an opportunity to awards participants who had positively contributed to the success of the programme. 

Caitlin was nominated by Miss Belk on the following criteria:

  • Young Person/adult volunteer/local resident who has made an outstanding contribution to the programme.
  • Participant who has gone on to achieve greater things due to being part of this programme. 
  • Community person/Local resident who has supported the programme, given back to the community and contributed to the success of the programme within their area.

Miss Belk commented "Caitlin was a committed leader who attended all sessions regularly, demonstrating leadership and maturity earning her the award nomination.  I would also like to commend the 7 other HSLA leaders for their outstanding efforts and continued support."
