MPC Volunteers for Primary Olympiad

The Olympiad was held at the Riverside Stadium in Chester-Le-Street. The event saw primary school children from around County Durham take part in a range of sports and activities throughout the day.

The learners from Military Preparation Course Centres based in the North East had the pleasure of volunteering at such an event.

The learners were paired off and given sports and activities to oversee. The learners conducted themselves appropriately throughout the day and were great role models to the younger generation, thus proving to be a great asset to the company. The YH Staff covered all parts of the event and ensured that the sports and activities were run appropriately and timely.

The day was not your typical Friday in the office, but a full day of smiles and enthusiastic individuals. The day was a great success overall the children enjoyed themselves, as did the learners and the staff too. The learners are keen to attend further events in the North East and combining staff and students ensures that YH Training Services Military Preparation Course are out in full force.


Since the event, the learners and staff at MPc received the following letter of thanks,

To The fantastic staff at YH Training Services,

On Friday 15th June the Durham & Chester-le-Street School Sport Partnership held an annual Mini Olympics Sports Event for KS2 pupils across Durham & Chester-le-Street.  In total, 16 primary schools attended the event, a total of 1,200 children took part.  Your students volunteered to assist at the event, and without the help and the support from volunteers/young leaders like them, we could not have run such events, the help was truly invaluable in facilitating the coaching of such large numbers of children.

Many of the sports coaches and primary school staff commented on the professionalism and enthusiasm showed by the students, they acted as excellent ambassadors for YH Training Services.  Events like this simply could not run without this kind of support from volunteers.

King Regards,
