We recently held our school’s final of The Youth Philanthropy Initiative, a competition run nationally by The Wood Group. 32 groups of S2 pupils took part in the competition representing 19 local charities in a bid to win £3000 of funding. Each group worked with their tutor teacher to create a presentation outlining the charity of their choice, the work that they do and what they would do with the prize money.
The final, held in front of all S1 & S2 pupils was a tight affair but was eventually won by Jamie Shepherd, Aidan Sutherland, Kerrie Sutherland and Elle Harrold, representing Caithness Mental Health Support Group.
We’d like to thank the charities, guest judges, S2 tutors and pupils who made the event such a success.
