Year 5 primary school students participated in a Road to Rio festival at Kingsbury High School on Tuesday 7th June.
Students from Fryent, Kingsbury Green and Oliver Goldsmith primary schools had the chance to try Tennis, Golf and Seated Volleyball – sports which will all feature in this year’s Olympic and Paralympic games.
The festival was led fantastically by Kingsbury High School’s Year 9 & 10 Sports Leaders who rotated participants through each activity explaining the rules as they went to ensure the event was a success.
The Olympic games begin on Friday 5th August and finish on Sunday 21st August. The Paralympic games run from Wednesday 7th September to Sunday 18th September.
On Wednesday 17th June, Kingsbury High School, Year 8, and Woodfield School, Year 7 and 9, students helped to organise and lead a Year 1 family festival. Approximately 120 students from Fryent Primary and St. Robert Southwell Primary Schools attended the festival.
As part of the School Sports Partnership, our festivals are held regularly throughout the year to give the older students a chance to practice their leadership skills whilst also enabling the younger students to develop fundamental movement skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination.
On Thursday 2nd February 2012 Kingsbury High School’s Year 10 Sports Leadership group held a festival for Year 2 pupils in Kingsbury High Schools’ feeder primary schools. As part of their Sports Leadership Level One course, the group planned and led a variety of multi-skills activities which enabled the younger pupils to develop fundamental movement and sport skills, such as agility, balance, co-ordination, catching and throwing.
Over 200 pupils attended from Fryent Primary School, Oliver Goldsmith Primary School, Roe Green Junior School, Kingsbury Green Primary School and St. Robert Southwell Catholic Primary School.
