We interviewed a couple of students who were involved in our CACTUS Programme in Term 1 this year.
These Youth arrive at 6am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning for a variety of physical and mental challenges that are aimed to help youth develop a range of skills and improve fitness.
This is what they had to say……
Name: Hannah Chapman
School: Year 9 at Marlborough Girls
How did you feel on your first day of Cactus? I was really nervous that it was going to be too hard, but we are halfway there and I now I like getting up early and I see the full potential of the day
What have you found most challenging about CACTUS? Skills have been hard, especially the bear crawls! And am always nervous that I am going to be late.
What has been your favourite part? I like how we all work together as a team and I am looking forward to the longest day
Name: Jack Nicholls
School: Year 10 at Marlborough Boys
What made you sign up to CACTUS? Mum and I decided it would be a good thing to do. Challenging me to get up early! (Jack gets up at 5.15am every Mon, Wed and Fri!)
What has been your Favourite part of CACTUS so far? I love the activities that get you thinking. Also enjoyed running with your hands on the grass as it was a mental challenge - the grass was so cold on your hands!
What have you found most challenging about CACTUS? Sprinting up the hills, that was hard!
What would you say to others who were thinking of signing up to CACTUS? I would highly recommend it, its gets you out doing stuff in the community; you feel more confident and get to meet new people.
