From helping the police to learning about dementia, local schools have been getting involved with community projects.
Five Diana Award Ambassadors at Ormiston Venture Academy were eager to support the local police with their bike marking scheme within the community. The Ambassadors set up an event at Homefield VC Primary school in Bradwell where there were over 25 bikes to mark and register on the police database to try and prevent bikes being stolen. PC Lucy Boakes commented "Bike marking consists of a tamper-proof sticker being put onto a bike and that bike being registered with BikeRegister; this is a database that Norfolk Police access to identify stolen bikes. This was a great collaboration between schools which we would like to do more of. The input from students at Ormiston Venture Academy was invaluable".
Students from The College of West Anglia have supported NHS staff by offering free pamper treatments at the Inspire Centre located in the grounds of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The event was organised by the Health and Wellbeing staff at the hospital.
Staff and students from East Coast College delivered one of their Beach School family sessions at Ness Point for East Suffolk Council. Over 40 children and their families attended a fun-filled day which included rope making, brass rubbings and learning about the environment.
Year 8 from Hellesdon High School participated in a workshop by The Friend Ship at the Millennium Library. Their work will contribute to the HumaniTea Party exhibition at Open Norwich during Refugee Week.
