Personal Best Education Young Leaders help to lead the way

Personal Best Education coaches from Mountbatten School and Year 7 Young Leaders from Test Valley School organised a Key Stage 1 Festival for five of the schools in our local cluster.Young Leaders help to lead the wayYoung Leaders help to lead the way

The coaches organised a movement and multi skills morning for seventy Key Stage 1 pupils and, with the help of the Test Valley Young Leaders, were able to keep the primary school pupils occupied for two hours with a variety of activities — including parachute games and an inflatable gymnastics track.

Pupils were prepared for the session with a fun warm-up which the Young Leaders were fully involved in and made sure the primary pupils knew what to do.Young Leaders help to lead the way

The Young Leaders worked hard to encourage high levels of performance from all the Key Stage 1 pupils.

Headteacher Louisa Hiscock said:

‘This was a wonderful event with the primary school pupils clearly having fun, full of enthusiasm and learning a variety of skills. The coaches encouraged all the pupils to try new activities and do their best. We were also very proud of our own Young Leaders who did an excellent job supporting the younger pupils and helping to run the activities.  We always enjoy hosting such events at Test Valley School because everyone involved gains so much from it and my thanks go to Mrs Smith for co-ordinating this.’
