Students support major schools’ competition

Uniformed Services students put their leadership and teamwork skills into practice when they helped manage a major schools’ sporting event.

Fifteen students from Cambridge Regional College volunteered their services as marshals for the South Cambridgeshire School Sports Partnerships Cross Country competition.

The event, held at Wimpole Hall estate, attracted 800 young runners, supported by fellow pupils, families and staff along the 1600 metre course.

More than 20 primary schools took part in the annual event, one of the biggest school sporting competitions in the region, with pupils from Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 taking part.

Julie Pashley, Project Officer for the South Cambs School Sports Partnership, said there had been fantastic feedback on the event, and the Uniformed Services students had done an amazing job of marshalling the course.

CRC student liaison and enrichment co-ordinator Sarah Allen said the Uniformed Services students had enjoyed supporting the competition.

“It was a great opportunity for them to put into practice all the teamwork and leadership skills they have learned throughout their course and they did an excellent job,” she said.
