Their time at Easter saw the students complete residential breaks at Mepal outdoor centre and at Bircham Newton and then the final day at College of West Anglia. They completed various projects including charity fundraising, cake sales, and bag packing.The graduation ceremony saw the end of the College of West Anglia’s first National Citizen Service course this y - Credit: Archant
