Prince William Award starts at Oliver House

This year we are very excited to be running the Prince William Award programme at Oliver House for Year 4. It is designed to help develop confidence, resilience and inner strength in order for the children to ‘dare to be their best self’ and it is aimed at reinforcing our Character Development Programme in a practical manner. This will take place within school time from 1.30pm -3.30pm on Friday afternoon. We would like to thank TOPS for their generous assistance and support of the scheme.
SkillForce is a national education charity, employing predominantly ex-servicemen and women to deliver the Prince William Award in schools. HRH, Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge is the royal patron. A SkillForce instructor will be coming into school once per week to run a series of workshops, sessions and projects that will encourage the children to understand and reflect on the importance of key character traits such as resilience, self-esteem, team-work and confidence.
This is achieved through taking part in interactive games and activities, community projects and reflective learning, all of which follow a scheme of work that has been developed and evaluated by some of the country’s top universities and educationalists.
At the end of the programme, when children have developed the qualities that underpin The Prince William Award, they will receive a PWA certificate and badge at a graduation ceremony.
