CapeUK's association with the region's rugby league clubs through our Partnership Investment with RL Cares is continuing to expand and engage with more young people through dance and heritage and Arts Award.
Our connection with Wakefield Trinity and the club's Learning Zone has led to 18 children achieving Arts Award so far this year and connections developed with two local primary schools and the city's Hepworth Gallery. The children involved learned how to use art and photography as a means to investigate history and show changes in the local environment. They were introduced to sculpture through the connection with the Hepworth and developed additional skills including team work, peer support and research.
The programme has also seen the Learning Zone incorporating photography and graphic design into its offer for children, young people and schools.
The latest development has involved Wakefield Trinity adding a specific section for children, young people and schools to use on their new Heritage Website covering the history of the club to help them learn more about the club's past and its place in the history of the Wakefield community.
CapeUK joined past and present players and the team behind the website's creation to officially launch the website.
Jo Kelly, Wakefield Trinity Learning Zone Manager, said: "We would like to give a massive vote of thanks to CapeUK and RL Cares. The Wakefield Trinity Heritage Website is something we are particularly proud of and we believe that it will be a great resource for both our club and our community. For example, local schools will be able to use the website as an educational resource and people will be able to look back over our history and remember our past achievements."
