Junior Wardens Scheme

14 Nov 2019   |   Georgia Law, Business Administrator   |   The Forest Academy

In September, The Forest Academy had the opportunity to join the Junior Warden Scheme.  Twelve Year five pupils were chosen to take part in this exciting new venture, ran by Miss Galley and supported by Mr Hallam and Miss Law. The Junior Warden Scheme is funded by grants made available by our Ward Alliances and Councilors and is supported by South Yorkshire Police and all the Emergency Services. The scheme is deliberately designed to be lots of fun and interesting whilst still teaching the group some important life skills.

The schemes have been running successfully for the past eleven years in the Dodworth area but now include Worsborough, Kingstone and Central Wards.  The aims are character building, forming team spirit, building self-confidence, providing a better insight in how a community works; giving a brief opportunity to enjoy being part of that community and learn life-saving skills and safety advice along the way.
Look at the amazing adventures the group will be taking part in with lots of amazing companies…
