Premier League Inspires Challenge: Secondary school students present ideas around environmental sustainability
Posted on 27th January 2023 at 16:40
As part of this year's Premier League Inspires Club Heat Challenge, students from secondary schools in Hull and East Riding carried out a team building project which aimed to address the issues of climate change and environmental sustainability.
The Premier League Inspires project works with students in secondary schools that typically face barriers to them achieving their full potential such as low confidence and self-esteem, attendance, or social skills.
Each team had two hours to brainstorm their ideas with classmates and teachers through both a spider diagram and within a PowerPoint Presentation ensuring that their idea would consider the Who,What,Where,When and Whys of the subject matter while guaranteeing the idea would be inclusive and achievable for both the team members and anyone else who would be involved.
After the activity timeframe had passed, students were visited by Hull City scholars Rocco Coyle and James Carr who built up half of a judging panel to determine which schools’ idea was considered the best.
Each school took their turn to present their ideas in front of the judges and after careful observation, Holderness Academy came out victorious.
Each team was then presented with both medals and a Tigers Trust drawstring bag by Rocco and James, whilst Holderness Academy received a trophy for each team member as well as a trophy for the school.
The event then concluded with a tour of the MKM Stadium as students got to see behind the scene areas such as dressing rooms, tunnel areas and hospitality suites.
