Update from our friends at YoMo

If you log onto and go into the latest news section you will see a couple of items of interest! Firstly, the National Event in October is one we have been invited to. KYSPA will be running a 35 min presentation/workshop about our own experiences setting ourselves up and what we have done since our training.

We can only take about 4 members to this event which is on the 25th - 26th October. If you would like to attend and raise KYSPA's profile NATIONALLY, then please find out from your parents if you are free on those dates.

The ONLY expense will be transport and possibly a couple of meals. accommodation and admission will be free as we're "exhibitors". If you are interested, I need to know SOON.

Picking just four members is going to be tough. I don't want it to be random (names out of a hat) and I don't want to choose myself - because it looks like I'm "playing favourites".

SO, if you want to go, I will give you a questionnaire to fill in with some of the topics you will need to talk about. These will be filled in anonymously using your "numbers" from the Making Waves folders (A1, B5 etc.) The Board of Trustees will then pick the four best candidates based on these forms, making it perfectly fair.

If I had my way, I'd be taking all of you - you'd all do us proud, but since we have to choose, this seems the fairest way. ALL of these forms will go into your Making Waves folder and will count as evidence towards your certificates so even if you don't go, the form will still be helpful.

Secondly, if you select photos on the YoMo latest news page and click on the "Devon April" section, you'll see... yourselves! All the KYSPA photos from our Lindridge trip are on display in that folder. Enjoy!
