Change4Life Celebration Festivals
Posted: Fri, 15 Apr 2016 10:26
This summer term our School Sports Partnerships will be hosting four Change4Life celebration festivals for schools in our county that host a Change4Life club.
Change4Life clubs are targeted at less active pupils in primary schools and aim to promote the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle. A Change4Life club allows children to participate in fun activities that help to develop their confidence and fundamental skills that can support them to be more active and participate in PE, wider sports and activities. Clubs help to provide children a sense of belonging, promoting regular attendance in an exciting, inclusive environment that children might not have previously experienced or enjoyed.
The purpose of the festivals is to celebrate the children's achievements this school year and to showcase some of the opportunities local clubs and organisations can provide to inspire children to be more active in school and life.
We have secured the services of some of our local clubs in the county, from sports such as golf, boxing, tennis, karate and more, to provide children with the chance to have a go at sports that they may have never tried before. The events will not only focus on sporting activities, children will also have the chance to try healthy eating, gardening and fire service activities to help inspire them to lead a healthy active lifestyle.
