Following the success of last year’s staff team TSS has decided to enter a youth team in to the Dragon Boat Festival on 22-24 June. Roberts Park will once again be filled with thrashing paddles; with the youth event on the Friday and our two staff teams, Titus’ Titanic Titans and Salt’s Sinking Sailors on the Saturday. All teams are raising money for Cancer Support Yorkshire.

The youth team, made up of Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils were selected on their ATL (Approach to Learning) grades and their general attitude within school. The ultimate aim of the project is to improve confidence and give them an opportunity to work towards a goal as part of a team. Crossing the finish line in 1st place would be an added bonus!

Coach to the Youth Team, Mr Lambley said: “The team have been given the opportunity to try something new and venture out of their comfort zone. Mr Robinson and I want the pupils to enjoy the experience but also work hard in a new skill to be the best they can be.”

The whole event promises to be a fun filled family festival with dragon boat racing on the river and landside attractions for all to enjoy including children’s entertainment, charity stalls, catering stands, games, bar, live acts and much, much more, please come along and support the TSS family!
