CORDEAUX School Y12 Student Rosie Taylor took part in National Citizen Service.
She said: “National Citizen service is a four week course for 16-year-olds all over Great Britain set up by David Cameron designed to develop skills, and give young people a good name in the local community.
“During this course I went on two residential trips; the first was to PGL where my team and I faced challenges including abseiling, shooting, archery, assault course, orienteering and the giant swing.
“The second trip was to RAF Cranwell where we spent a week doing the ‘drill’ and activities such as laser tag and ‘survivor’ in which we had to be camouflaged and retrieve a flag without getting caught by the opposition.
“During the course we also did some charity bag packing in Louth Co-op, and we also spent a week doing up a run down and overgrown allotment in Grimsby.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course as I made new friends, and it will look very good on my CV when applying for jobs with future employers.”
If you want to have the same experience as Rosie and the thousands of other 16 and 17-year-olds who took part in NCS this summer, then now is your chance.
