In November, all Year 9 pupils took part in the much anticipated YPI (Youth and Philanthropy Initiative) final. All of the Year 9s worked hard this year to research their chosen local charity and presented their ideas within their classes on why they should win their heat.
The winners from each class went head to head on Thursday and the standard of the presentations was incredibly high. All of the represented charities in the final could be considered worthy winners but after a difficult decision, the judges awarded the coveted winners crown to those pupils representing ‘Friends of Parkview’. This amazing charity does incredible work with young people in the local community and the prize money of £2000 will be much appreciated.
A huge congratulations to all participants – you did your charities proud!
