Adopt A School Kickoff – UK

The Adopt A School program began with a bang in the UK – we closed up office for a day to head over to Netley Primary School and begin our new partnership with their wonderful staff and students.

On our way

We were welcomed raucously during playtime, with lots of curious kids already introducing themselves and guessing why we were there! We were split into several groups and given a tour of the school by some very friendly and informative Year 5s, who we’ll be working the most closely with throughout the program. It was a great way to get to know the school and get the students’ perspectives on day to day life in Netley.

A warm welcome

Next, we headed to the auditorium, where Kevin introduced the three tracks we’ll be running; Business, Health & Fitness, and Engineering. As keen Minecraft players, the Engineering track was met with extra enthusiasm, and all the students received their t-shirts, which they quickly pulled on, ready to adopt the Next Jump orange for themselves!

Each track had a mini-taster lesson prepared for the students, and they all participated with lots of positive energy and openness. We finished with a lot of ideas for the future and are ready to challenge ourselves to make this a truly great experience for everyone involved. It’s so exciting to be part of such a collaborative effort to make a difference in kids’ lives, and we’re really looking forward to our next visit to Netley.
