On Wednesday, June 4, 2014, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge arrived at Goole High School in Goole, East Yorkshire, to attend the launch of SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award. The duke is patron of Skillforce.
According to the official website for Skillforce the award is:
“…part of a program to develop character and resilience in primary-age children, especially under-privileged pupils, as they prepare for the step-up to secondary school.
Peter Cross OBE, Chief Executive of SkillForce explains, ‘The SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award is designed to engage younger learners in exciting lessons, challenges and community projects that prepare them for secondary education, a time when some students can begin to lose their way.
Our program builds up the children’s confidence, resilience, teamwork and problem solving to give them a boost before the start of new adventures and encourage them to take a more active role in their town, city or village.’”
