Castleford Academy students are packing their bags for a dream trip to Australia, with the help of Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire.
Eight Year 11 pupils will jet off to Australia, after taking their GCSEs, to stay with a partner school, in Queensland, for a six-week sports and educational experience. The leading homebuilder is donating £500, providing the funds to help pay for flights and accommodation.
Mr Panayiotou, Headteacher at Castleford Academy, comments: “This truly is the trip of a lifetime. Our eight gifted students are being rewarded with the trip in July, where they’ll attend our partner school, Mackay State High. They’ll get fully immersed there and get the chance to play rugby for both the academy and local amateur club."
James Poynor, Managing Director, Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, adds: "We’ve no doubt the students will make memories to last forever and we are very happy to help deliver them.”
Taylor Wimpey’s Poppy Grange is a new development of stylish three- and four-bedroom homes, ideally located on the outskirts of Castleford. Prices start from just £162,995, meaning top-quality living in a popular location is available for buyers of all kinds.
