And the achievements of the past year were clear at a presentation evening which was held in the Victory Suite of Fratton Park.

Under the umbrella of the programme a range of educational, sport and skills courses are provided.

These include dance classes, boxing, training with the Royal Navy, and providing personal, social and health education in classrooms.

Pupils from Priory School, in Fawcett Road, Southsea, have been taking part in classes that focus on the realities of teenage pregnancies.

They included working with pretend babies that simulate what it is like to care for a newborn baby.

Romany Matthews, 14, who goes to Priory School, said: ‘Using the babies was a great way of making us realise how much work goes into looking after them.

‘I also think it’s a better way to learn because it’s more hands-on.

‘We also get outside speakers, such as teen mums, who come in and tell us about their life experiences.’

Dance group Urban Swaggers, made up of youngsters who are part of the Respect scheme, showed off their moves as part of the evening’s events.

Member Kayleigh Goodeve, 15, said: ‘I have always enjoyed dancing and started doing cheerleading.

‘Then I heard about the Respect Programme and I thought it would be a good idea to go along.

‘I’m glad I go because I feel like I’ve really achieved something and it will help me with a career in dance if I want to do that.

‘I like that the dance group is close together as well.’

Among those who attended the event were the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Councillor Paula Riches, David Lampitt, chief executive officer of Portsmouth Football Club, members of the Royal Navy and Police Community Support Officers.

Cllr Riches said: ‘This is an absolutely brilliant scheme.

‘I have always been involved with the Respect Programme.

‘It was initially set up to keep children off the streets.

‘And it has worked.

‘Just seeing the youngsters tonight you can see how much they have learned.

‘I loved this evening to pieces.’

Mr Lampitt said: ‘This event was an opportunity for everyone involved in the programme to showcase what they’re doing and to make people recognise and realise some of the great work that goes on.’

The Portsmouth and Southsea Round Table presented a £2,000 cheque towards the funding of the programme at the event on Thursday night.
