The Junior Civic Society allows us to form partnerships with schools to increase interest in our local heritage and involvement in civic issues.
The initiative involves:
The school signing up to be a Junior Civic Society member (no cost)
A section of Pontefract Voice (Pontefract Civic Society’s newsletter) allocated for Junior Civic Society news
Direct support to schools e.g. to support National Curriculum activities, providing speakers from the Civic Society, giving access to over 6,000 photographs of Pontefract and the surrounding area via our partnership with Pontefract Heritage Group
Invitations for Junior Civic Society members to be involved in forthcoming events
Sharing information, promoting best practice etc.
If you would like to know more about this initiative, or to discuss enrolment for your school, please get in touch.
We are proud to have the following schools as Junior Civic Society members
