Trip to Jamaica for

Callington students

THREE sixth form students from Callington Community College are jetting off on September 8, 2000 to Oracabessa, Jamaica on a working trip having won first prize in the Millennium Volunteers/ Ecclesiastical Insurance TOP LInk Leadership Camp, organised by the Youth Sport Trust and held at Loughborough University in May.

Andrew Notely, Kevin Rossiter and Ashley Wadland will work with pupils at Oracabessa Secondary School, coaching them in sports leadership skills and helping them plan a sports festival for their local primary school. They will also have the chance to introduce local Jamaican pupils to a range of games and activities based on the Youth Sport Trust TOP programme, to develop basic skills in sport.

Andrew, Kevin and Ashley were assessed on behaviour, attitude and their leadership skills over the four days of the camp to decide the prize winners. They beat off competition from more than 110 schools to win the one week working trip to Jamaica.

The students were selected to represent Cornwall at the MV/EITL Leadership Camp by their local authority for having submitted one of the best sports festival plans and committing to undertake 200 hours of sports based volunteering in their local community as part of the government's Millennium Volunteers initiative.

Ashley said: 'It certainly is the opportunity of a lifetime to visit Jamaica and we're really looking forward to working with the students at Oracabessa Secondary School. We;re hoping to show them how much fun sport can be.'
