FBB Schools: Chestnut Grove Summer Tour to Cardiff

A very important part of our FBB Schools programme involves rewarding young people for their hard work and progress by giving them the opportunity to go on tours and trips that broaden their horizons and reinforce the values we have been teaching them throughout the year. Our first secondary school tour of the summer was the Chestnut Grove academy tour to Cardiff at the beginning of July. This was the first time an FBB tour had gone to Wales, where we have been piloting an FBB Schools project at Fitzalan High school in the capital city. It was a great opportunity for young people from the two projects to connect “Beyond Borders” and get to know each other. As Debra, one of the young people from London said: “We had an action packed tour full of football where we got to meet another group of members from the FBB family who were full of energy and extremely friendly.”

As well as football matches against other groups of young people from around the Cardiff area, the tour participants were treated to a range of activities including Footgolf and even a tour of the Cardiff City stadium. Chestnut Grove’s Azriel particularly enjoyed the stadium tour: “It was a really interesting stadium to tour and we learnt that Vincent Tan, the owner of the club, is the 6th richest man in Malaysia!”

Saquib Malik, the teacher from Chestnut Grove who came on the tour, was delighted with the outcome of the tour: “The students were fantastic and they learnt a lot about personal responsibility as well as working as a team. They began the trip as individuals coming on a football tour but by the end they had developed a real sense of being part of the FBB family, looking out for each other whether it was on the pitch or washing the dishes. All in all it was a great experience, I can’t wait for next year’s tour!”
