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.

Energy Club Training

On Tuesday 3rd February School Sports Partnership got together with Sports Leaders UK to deliver a training session at Kingsbury High School.

The training, on how to run an Energy Club, was delivered to a selection of Kingsbury High’s Sixth Form Sports Leaders and local primary school teachers.

Energy Club is an initiative designed to offer young children, aged between 4 and 11, a fun and informative introduction to physical activity. Tuesday’s training will allow local primary schools to become accredited Energy Club centres; and Kingsbury High’s Sports Leaders to deliver Energy Club sessions to primary school children.

School Sports Co‐ordinator, Ashley Dunne-Watts said “The training was fun, active and gave me great confidence. It had a large variety of games which I can now use at my school.”

On Monday 7th July Kingsbury High School hosted one of the UK’s first Asda Active Sports Days, themed around the Commonwealth Games.

Kingsbury High School students, who are part of the Sports Leaders UK programme, led the activities as part of the Asda Active campaign.

Over 300 primary school students took part in sports including netball, football, cricket and Unihoc.

Annette Woodrow, Head of Physical Education and Extended Learning at Kingsbury High School, said “Healthy eating and exercise is something we strongly advise among the children here and with the help of Asda Community Life and Sports Leaders UK, we hope to see this continue to go from strength to strength.

“Keeping the spirit of 2012 alive in our local community is very important for youngsters and I hope this event will inspire them to get active, keep healthy, and volunteer themselves in the future.”

Vanitha Kumar, the community life champion at Asda Colindale said “The sports leaders are local young people who have committed to volunteering and I’m thrilled to support them with showing the school children how to fuel their activities with healthier snacks.”

Attending primary schools were Roe Green Juniors School, St Robert Southwell RC School, Fryent Primary School, Oliver Goldsmiths Primary School and Kingsbury Green Primary School.
