Team 61 at their presentation event.

Prince’s Trust students from Fife College marked the end of their course recently by showcasing their very own event to celebrate their achievements.

Approximately 1000 people have been recruited on to the Prince’s Trust programme over the past 16 years helping them build confidence and gain skills to turn their lives around.

The special celebration event for Team 61 was held at the College’s Dunfermline Campus which marked the successful completion of the team’s 12 week personal development course.

At the event, the students were presented with a range of certificates for subjects they had completed, including the John Muir environmental award, by Bryan McCabe-Bell, Director of Business, Enterprise and Tourism.

The students spoke about their fundraising community projects including work they carried out at Canmore Primary School in Dunfermline to revamp their outdoor area.

Thanks to the group the pupils at the school are now enjoying colourful tyres to jump through and painted planters and external areas.

The team were invited to a school assembly where they handed over the finished project to the school and were thanked by pupils and staff.

Each of the students also made their own individual presentation to explain to the audience what the programme meant to them.

Steven Cook, age 25 from Dalgety Bay, enjoyed the course which has helped improve his confidence. Said Steven: “What I enjoyed most about the course was the residential trip to Kailzie Bunkhouse in Peebles. I really liked the canoeing, much more than I thought I would. I don’t like heights so I found the rock climbing the most challenging. I hope to go on now to study a Degree in Applied Networking Technologies.”
