After a busy first-half term back at school, we wanted to provide a day of fun for our children, with a focus on relationships, team-building and exercise.
Ms. Fox immediately got in touch with our friends at Street Soccer and we worked together to provide a drop down day for all of our students at the Black Prince Community Hub. This involved the students taking part in activities such as Tango football, boxing, team-building exercises, but most importantly, getting lots of fresh air!
Feedback from our students has been really positive; one of our Year 7 children said that the races she did ‘were the most fun because I always really enjoy racing’ and a Year 8 student said he wants to do it ‘once a week’ in the future!
Craig McManus, Manager at Street Soccer, remarked on how impressed he was with our students, and how much fun they had had: “I asked a Year 7 what the sports day was all about, she said collaboration! I couldn’t of agreed more.
What an amazing 5 days working with the brilliant group of young people. Smiles, laughter and loads of energy! A great tonic for the tough times we are all experiencing. Can’t wait to do it again”.
We really want to look after our students and continue to support them during this pandemic. We can’t wait to offer more opportunities like this next term, and we already have a Maths drop down day planned.
A huge thank you to all our staff, the staff at Street Soccer and everyone who works at the Black Prince Community Centre for making this all possible.
We are so glad that our students were able to have fun, work as a team, and to truly let their lights shine.
