Paralympian Visits Penrice Academy

It was an honour to meet Great Britain Paralympian triathlete David Hill yesterday as he led a PE coaching session with our separate Year 7 & 8 girls’ bubbles as part of the Healthy Lifestyles Champions initiative from Youth Sport Trust

David’s visit marked the pinnacle of a seven week after school sports programme for aspiring Year 8 sports coaches. Previous sessions had included Rounders, Badminton, Athletics, Capture the Flag and other fun, active games.
The Year 8 students have gained valued experience from David, learning how to coach and lead PE sessions with younger students.
