A graduation ceremony at the National Hockey Stadium on Thursday 27th May marked the end of citischool's third year. Started by Tom Bulman, the scheme "where young people are citizens and citizens are teachers" engages students in a range of action learning experiences in work places and citizenship activities across Milton Keynes, for 15-16 year olds who are disaffected and at risk of GCSE failure. citischool innovates further by preparing corporate volunteers to deliver high quality Key Skills training based on their own experience of work. KMi provides the web-based planning and database infrastructure for the running of the scheme and forms part of the Open University's contribution to the scheme. Photo shows the Mayor of Milton Keynes presenting one of the awards to a citischool student, Andrew 'Cueball' Sames of Horizon Radio, and the 'school of 2004'.
