Good News Story - Yasmine Mante - Year 10
‘Well done Yasmine, everyone at PPS is very proud of you. What a fantastic achievement!’
Yasmine took her tap exam before the summer holidays and she received a distinction. In the last month she has only been home one weekend as she has been away with the Portsmouth Sea Cadets Craft Camp, Paddle Sport and Training for the District Parade.
Last weekend, Yasmine was asked at short notice to join the Armed Guard Squad for Sunday’s parade. She had to stay on board HMS Bristol (the training ship) at Whale Island for the whole weekend to train with a rifle. She was also chosen shortly before the parade to collect an award for her unit for being the best this year.
‘I can honestly say that it was a goose bump moment and I was proud to watch her. The staff who train Yasmine speak very highly of her.’
