Young Citizens – PALS
Playground Activity Leaders (PALS)
We are a team of children who have been selected by our peers because we have great communication skills, excellent organisational ability and outstanding leadership qualities, as well as lots of energy and enthusiasm.
We work in small teams, once or twice a week, to organise games (as well as other activities) in the playground at lunchtime such as French skipping and ‘double Dutch’. We encourage the children to be as active as possible at lunchtime and reward their enthusiasm and successes with certificates in assembly. We meet once a week to talk about new ideas, organise the lunchtime activity rota and check equipment.
