On Thursday I took 8 of our year 10 sports leaders to Ennerdale Leisure Centre to help assist the delivery of a primary school swimming gala.
The students were given some training prior to the primaries arriving, before getting involved either assisting children in the water, or helping with timekeeping and scoring.
The students were an absolute pleasure to take and represented the academy extremely well. Both the event organiser and all of the primary school teachers commented on the respectfulness and patience that our students showed (particularly as a lot of the primary school children had a number of SEN qualities).
Please see attached the photos. It was a joy to watch our students get involved so well and make the running of the event a huge success!
If you see any of the students around the academy, please congratulate them for their efforts:
