BLOG: An NCS Summer

Newcastle United Foundation has its largest ever National Citizen Service intake this summer and over the next few weeks weโ€™ll be hearing from participants out of each of the three teams about their experiences.ย 

First up is Luke Ferguson, aged 17, from Walbottle Campus Sixth Formโ€ฆ

โ€œI heard about the project through an assembly by Newcastle United Foundation at school. I decided to sign up to gain new experiences and face challenges.

โ€œPersonally, I was very nervous on the first day waiting to meet my group for the first time- I didnโ€™t know anybody. We made friends through the group activities and especially since I shared a room during the residential with some new people.

โ€œWhile we were away we did rock climbing, abseiling and orienteering but in particular, I liked the gyll scrambling because it was a new and interesting challenge which was made fun as the group and team leaders were encouraging everyone.

โ€œI found abseiling to be a challenge because I arrived on the residential being afraid of heights. My favourite activity was the minibus challenge as it was really competitive and a right laugh! Coming back to St Jamesโ€™ Park was brilliant because I couldnโ€™t wait to speak with my new friends from the other groups.

โ€œDuring our second week, we completed a stadium tour of St Jamesโ€™ Park, we went go-karting and completed a first aid course. During our time on NCS we learned skills such as leading a team, communication and above all how to motivate people. It was a really good feeling to help people overcome their personal fears.

โ€œWith regards to the coaching experience, I believe myself and all the other members of my NCS group have gained a unique bond between ourselves and the team leaders which has allowed all of us to enjoy our journey through this programme in the most enjoyable way possible.โ€
