Student lights up one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings
A Liverpool student has had his photo projected across one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings, in celebration of the Prince’s Trust’s 40th year.
Callum Clements, a sixth form student at Broadgreen International School, was chosen to take part in the #partofPT campaign at the Royal Liverpool Building after he recently won the 2016 Novae Educational Achiever of the Year award.
Callum won the accolade in recognition of how he has overcome barriers, developed new skills and improved his education prospects.
Callum was born prematurely with a complex blood disorder and placed into foster care shortly after his birth. As a result, Callum suffered at school: he was disruptive, lacked confidence and was isolated from his peers.
Since joining the school’s xl programme, Callum has become a valuable member of the xl team and has been taking part in units such as healthy eating and money management. He recently earned his xl award and first ever academic qualification: his Level 1 certificate.
The projection on Liverpool’s famous Royal Liver Building shows Callum with his name in lights, alongside the campaign hashtag and 40 years logo.
Educate caught up with Callum when the projection went live and captured the proud moment for both Callum and the school.
The #partofPT campaign has been lighting up buildings in London, Cardiff, Birmingham and Glasgow highlighting its 40 years of work helping young people turn their lives around.
