Previous Events/ RYLA Students Talk
At the Monday evening meeting two Barton Peveril College students – Aliceand Amana – gave a well structured feedback presentation on their time at Avon Tyrell. They were part of around 60 young people participating in a programme designed to help develop Leadership Skills. Using visual aids they told of some of the activities they engaged in such as problem solving in a group, raft building, trust walking, climbing on low ropes. They explored what makes a good leader and how to achieve outcomes using good teamwork. Communication skills (and recognising the barriers to) were also a key part of the programme. Both Alice and Amana said they had gained new confidence in themselves, made new friends and most of all had fun. They were very complimentary to the friendly staff and would recommend the experience to any other young people. Martin presented both young ladies with a Certificate recognising their achievements.
