'This Girl Can' Festival

Last week, fourteen students from Years 7 and 10 attended the 'This Girl Can' festival at the Wodson Park Sports Centre. The day consisted of three sessions focused on developing confidence, teamwork, and trying new sports. The students were also fortunate enough to meet double-Olympian Montell Douglass, who represents Great Britain in the 100m, 4x100m Relay, and Bobsleigh.

'This Girl Can' is a great cause, funded by the National Lottery, and believing there is no "right" way to get active. The girls' attitude throughout the day was fantastic and they came away feeling excited to start a club of their own back at Hertswood, to encourage other girls to engage in fitness and sport.
