community leaders club

Members of CLC have the goal of growing empathy and understanding in the school and wider communities. We conduct workshops at Thornton Academy as well as other local schools to fight bullying.

We have a great time and try to make healthy connections with other kids at school through classroom presentations and awareness events/campaigns.
