Sky Living Day 2
Since October, Miss Prest has been working closely with the “Sky
Sports Living for Sport” student team on developing a range of new sporting skills. The aim of this project is to make sporting activity a part of our daily lifestyle. Eighteen Year 9 and 10 students were involved, participating for 12 weeks before Ian Rose (4 time Paralympic medallist) returned to Whitmore to assess the success of the project. He was highly impressed with the strategies and skills the girls had put into place and praised them for their efforts. The girls then had a Judo session with the medallist and showed fantastic teamwork and spirit.
The Year 9 cohort also benefitted from hearing Ian's incredibly inspiring story in their assembly, leaving both students and staff feeling determined to try something new and to perservere when times get tough.The girls were all fantastic and will be continuing their hard work by participating in lots of clubs!
