In October 2015, 13 Year 9 pupils from Carr Manor Community School started a journey working with Business Mentors from Asda and Capsticks Solicitors of Leeds.
Every couple of months, pupils visited their Mentors place of work to learn about team building and communication skills. All pupils and Business Mentors were set different Make The Grade Mentoring tasks to see how they worked together as a team showing resilience, motivation, independence and confidence.
Wednesday 8th June 2016 saw all parties come together for a final celebration event held at Carr Manor, lead by Melissa Garrett, Project Manager from A-Head Partnership in Leeds.
Pupils were asked to design and make a hat for the Queens birthday showing their individual talents and flair. To close the event all pupils were awarded with a certificate and trophy from their mentors for completing this Mentoring scheme. All pupils were a credit to our school showing their commitment to all tasks given to them. A big well done to the pupils for all their involvement and hard-work.
