Plymstock school pupils brave charity skydive
DARING pupils plunged out of a plane for charities close to their hearts.
The eight brave youngsters from Plymstock School have raised more than £2,000 following their adrenaline filled skydive.
Year 13 pupil Cameron Phillips is the project manager and organiser of the event.
He said: "We raised the money for five charities which were chosen by the students. They are Cancer Research, Help for Heroes, Chromes Disease, RNLI and Believe in Magic. "The money was raised through various activities such as cake sales, sponge a teacher, a movie night, collection tins and also by students collecting money in Plymouth city centre.

"The students who embraced the skydive also had to raise £395 each, of which £165 went straight to the charities, so an extra £825 to the original £2,000."
As well as being an experience of a lifetime and a successful fundraiser, the skydive project formed part of necessary coursework.
"To some this was just a trip," Cameron said. "But to these impeccable students it was coursework and as a result they made sure they put in every bit possible to make it a success. It entailed having to delegate leaders for various roles as it was to mirror the workplace scenario of working in a modern, developing business.
"These young adults learned it was not easy and had strive through hardship and certain difficulties. By their sheer determination they were able to pull together in organising the whole event."
