Earlier this week, four of our Year 10 students travelled to Eastwood Hall Hotel for a Youth Sport Trust Girls Active Conference. The Youth Sport Trust is a charity working to ensure that every child can enjoy the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport. Girls Active is one of their initiatives and it aims to find ways to ensure that PE, sport and physical activity are relevant and motivating for girls.
During the day our students, together with students from ten other schools, took part in workshops to identify why some girls do not participate in physical activities. They also had the chance of some physical activity themselves by trying out Zumba, Drumba, yoga and boxercise.
The students have returned eager to share their enthusiasm for sport with those of our younger students who are currently non-engaged in our lunchtime clubs. They already have plans for a new club, which they will run with the support of our PE staff, focusing on activities that students have said they would like to try.
Well done girls for embracing this opportunity to get involved!
