THE TERRITORIAL Army put students through their paces at the Dearne ALC.

Student ambassadors from across Barnsley were invited to take part in the special event, which saw the local Army Reserve unit 4 Yorks visit the school.

All 60 students who took part were Made In Barnsley ambassadors, and worked as teams throughout Monday’s event to build on skills such as teamwork, interaction and communication.
