successful 'Step Up Transition Project' continues to grow from strength to
strength. The programme has been running for over 5 years in partnership with
Stockport MBC and the National League Trust and the new cohort are doing very
well as we reach the half way summer break stage in this years programme.
We are really
pleased to continue to deliver this programme due to the continued vital
funding from Stockport MBC and The National League Trust and this programme really
makes a difference to our local community School children in Year 6 making the
'Transition' to High School. The eight month project is delivered to reduce the
possible fear and anxiety that sometimes can occur when moving schools. This
year the group were selected from; Adswood Primary, Bridgehall Primary, Cale
Green Primary, St. Bernadette's, Westmorland and St. Mark’s Primary Schools. We
have once again set up a calendar of events to run once a month on a Saturday
starting in April. The activities each month include; Bowling, Wall Climbing,
Orienteering, Bikeability Training along with Educational Workshops during each
session with our Learning Mentor.
funding we have received from The National League Trust and Stockport MBC we
have great support from Brian and his team at Cerecycloan who will be
supporting the programme along with supplying a bike to each member of the
group on completion of the programme. This will be taking place in December
following a completion ceremony conducted by local dignitaries.
We are very
excited to be working on this great project and will keep you updated on the
progress of the group and thank you to Stockport MBC and The National League
Trust for their continued support.
