Last week Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College held their annual ‘Enhancement Fair’ promoting an array of extra-curricular pursuits for pupils to get involved with. There was certainly an exciting atmosphere with basketball demonstrations, meet and greet chatter and bright banners advertising activities for students to enrich their college life experience.
For students with the desire to boost their team spirit and burn off some energy, Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College offered a great variety of sports teams to join including basketball, netball, rugby (with Leeds Rhinos!), football and women’s football. Budding explorers could sign up to jet set to cultural hot-spots like China and Berlin, whilst those wanting something closer to home could enrol with groups helping to build skills such as sign language, crafts, crochet and foreign languages.
Alongside groups organised by our own team of staff, external companies also held stalls recruiting volunteers: St. Anne’s Community Services, a city-wide support and care organisation; The Weekenders Club, supporting disabled children and their families; National Citizen Services, a not-for-profit social enterprise offering exhilarating challenges for students to help build skills for work and life; West Yorkshire Police, recruiting for Volunteer Police Cadets, Police Support Volunteers, Special Constables and for the Community Volunteer Scheme; Riding for the Disabled, providing equestrian activities for children and adults; ‘Voice, Influence, Change’, a citizenship project in Leeds; and Leeds City Council Venues Team; offering volunteering opportunities in Theatre, Arts and Events management.
