The Polar Academy identifies 14-17 year old secondary school children who suffer from low self-esteem and gives them the chance to redefine their physical and mental limits.
10 pupils from Bathgate Academy have been given the opportunity to participate in this life-changing programme and we would like to invite local businesses - and the local community - to offer their support.
Participants are put through a rigorous ten-month training programme before being immersed in the wilds of Greenland, navigating through some of the world's remotest terrain for ten days. Their confidence soars with every step.
On their return to Scotland, each pupil shares their experiences with their peer groups, speaking to thousands of school children in their region. What an opportunity for these pupils to develop their skills and motivation!
The Polar Academy unlocks the vast potential within young adults and turns them into positive role models for their community and families. It inspires the next generation, boosts their confidence and allows them to achieve something significant.
Bathgate Academy would like to invite the local community to get involved in becoming a patron of the charity, and/or supporting with fundraising activity. Your support could help to transform the lives of these local young people.
