Rewards for Sports Leaders!

Rewards for Sports Leaders!

On the 8th of July 2022, Year 10 Sports Leaders embarked on their reward trip, to Aqua Action Waterpark, Ilford.

The Sports Leaders were rewarded with this trip as an acknowledgement of their hard work and dedication to volunteering over the past couple of terms; this varies from arranging PE lessons to hosting a Multi-Sports day for primary schools around the area. In all of these different events parents, teachers and children from many different schools persistently showed their admiration and gratitude for the time and effort our sports leader illustrated, as a subsequent reward they were gifted with a fun and eventful trip.

Two of our Sports Leaders, Paris and Olivia, won the Jack Petchey achievement award in which they were granted £300 each to spend in a department of their choice. Paris kindly used her funding to facilitate the Reward trip and Olivia spent her money on equipment for the drama department. The trip was thoroughly enjoyed by both the Leaders and teachers who accompanied them, with a lot of people gaining more confidence in swimming as a result.

The staff at Aqua Action were very welcoming and helpful, and we look forward to hopefully visiting them again on another trip sometime in the future. We are hoping to recruit more sports leaders as our current ones turn their focus on their upcoming GCSEs next year, please contact Miss Iwobi if you are interested.
