On Thursday 27th June, we had the pleasure of welcoming the brilliant Prison Me No Way Trust team back to Winifred Holtby Academy to work with our Year 8 pupils. The PMNW Trust works to raise awareness amongst young people about the causes, consequences, penalties and impact of crime and risky behaviour.
The day was filled with engaging and informative activities: from Magistrates and mock trials to a presentation from the Fire Service and Network Rail on safety; and from a talk by an ex-offender to a workshop on anti-social behaviour. Our pupils had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed what the PMNW team had to offer. Their level of engagement and the quality of the questions they asked was superb. It was also great to see our older pupils recall their PMNW way event from previous years – something that stands in testament to the powerful impact that the PMNW team have.
We had lots of positive feedback from pupils, staff and from our visitors and very much look forward to welcoming the Prison Me No Way team back next year!
