It’s been a busy start to term for our PE Department, with numerous students achieving some well-deserved recognition.
From Prenton Parliament to the Duke of Edinburgh Award, we are proud to offer our students a wide range of different leadership opportunities. This includes the Sports Leaders Programme, which is designed to use sport and physical activity to help young people develop and hone their leadership skills whilst helping themselves and others stay physically active. Students get the chance to plan, lead and evaluate sports/physical activity sessions over a number of tutored hours and then demonstrate their leadership skills as part of an assessment. Congratulations to the following students who have recently achieved a Sports Leaders Award; Alex, Amber, Amy, Cleo, Lucy, Alisha, Lois, Olivea, Eloise, Freya, Jess, Beth, Holly, Paige, Millie, Lauren, Bonnie Mae and Cora.
We are also proud to announce that more students have gained their England Boccia Leadership award. Boccia is a target ball sport which tests both muscle control and accuracy. The national Boccia Leadership initiative allows participants to take part in physical activity, overcoming a range of barriers they might face when trying to access sport outside of the national curriculum. The scheme has also been evidenced to improve a number of life skills, including communication, resilience, responsibility and confidence.
Well done to the following students:
Beth, Holly, Paige, Millie, Cora and Bonnie-Mae
Amber, Cleo, Lucy, Amy and Alex
Eleanor, Faye, Jess, Charlotte, Isabel, Lucy and Trudi
Ambra, Ciara, Megan, Lily, Betty and Sasha
We’d also like to give a special mention to Amy in year 10, Gracie-Mae in year 9 and Ciara in year 8 who were all recently selected for the Merseyside FC trials. This is a fantastic achievement and we are delighted to share that they have all made the final team.
