This morning, our Y11s who are working with @NYBEP_NE on the ‘Your Choice Your Voice’ programme had great fun constructing chairs from balloons! The challenge was to make a chair that could be sat upon without it bursting & both teams succeeded! #proudtobepindar #thrivewithhope pic.twitter.com/gj47…
