Before the end of the summer term, hundreds of UK school children were excitedly celebrating being among some of the first young people to graduate from SkillForce’s prestigious Prince William Award.
Along with their teachers and instructors they put together show-stopping graduation ceremonies in which they were able to demonstrate to their peers, parents and family members just how much they had grown in resilience, confidence and self-belief through our character education programme.
Everyone at SkillForce and all of the schools, families and communities involved are extremely proud of the progress of the award and the hard-working pupils who have completed it.
And we are thrilled to share that our royal patron HRH The Duke of Cambridge took time to record a special graduation message to be shown to all of those young people who have truly ‘dared to be their best self’ throughout the course of the award. HRH praised the children’s achievements and encouraged them to continue to be courageous.
The video message delighted children and adults alike and we are very pleased to be able to share it here.
