Pupils take part in their own version of I’m a Celeb
CHILDREN at Pontypridd High School have been living out their own version of I’m a Celebrity.
Rhondda Cynon Taf students have been tackling a range of jungle-theme challenges inspired by the popular ITV show.
Organised by the council’s Youth Engagement and Participation Service (YEPS), the I’m a Ponty High Student... Get Me Out of Here event was a “great success” and a huge hit with the pupils at the school.
Despite not being hosted by Ant and Dec, the students got to take part in their very own Bushtucker trials.
As part of their challenges, they munched their way through a selection of weird, wonderful and not always appetising things.
The YEPS Extended Provision takes place every Tuesday at Pontypridd High School from 5-7pm and around 28 young people, aged 11-16, took part in the “jungle antics”.
Among part was aged 12.
She said: “The YEPS Extended Provision at our school is always great fun, but taking part in Get Me Out of Here was such a great event.
“I look forward to many more just like it.”
Fellow student Ffion Davies, also aged 12, said: “I enjoy watching the ITV series each night, and to be a part of our own school version of this game show those Molly taking Davies, was brilliant – although thankfully we did not have to eat anything like they do on television!”
Councillor Christina Leyshon, deputy cabinet member for children and young people, said: “Our Youth Engagement and Participation Service carries out some fantastic after school activities across our county borough.
“This particular event, based upon the television series, saw students taking part in a variety of challenges within the school environment, helping them to show tremendous team spirit.”
