The father of two was all smiles as he visited the youngsters at Llanfoist Fawr Primary School in Wales on Wednesday to launch the SkillForce Prince William Award presented in his honor.
The children, decked out in traditional English dress, were so excited to see the charming monarch arrive on campus. Looking dashing in a white shirt and navy blazer, he was spotted cracking jokes and sharing laughs with some little ones on his way in.
Of course, the visit wasn’t all work and no play. Always a good sport, Prince William partook in ball games with the kids and even helped construct a tent while blindfolded!
Each teambuilding activity supported the initiatives laid out by the SkillForce award, which aims to help children age 6-14 develop the confidence to think independently and create informed decisions through both individual and global awareness.
According to the Skillforce website: “The basis of the award is experiential learning--students learn and embed knowledge through experience, and learning is facilitated through coaching by trained instructors, with opportunity for reflection."
The award is delivered at three different levels: Pioneer, Explorer and Trailblazer for children within the age group.
Prince William sure knows how to inspire--what a fun way to introduce such a noble cause!
