Year 9 girls participate in the ‘In It together Celebration’ Event
On the 15th December, a group of year 9 girls were selected to participate in the ‘In It together Celebration’ Event. In It Together is a Sport England funded programme, supported by the Public Health team in Coventry. Aimed at providing opportunities for Women and Girls to participate in Sport and Physical Activity.
The day was built around the girls experiencing new activities and trying out new things. The 5 activities the girls took part in included: DD Mix, Bollywood Dancing, Martial Arts, Yoga and Wheelchair Basketball! Lunch time saw the girls get a chance to try out the fun and innovative smoothie bike, creating healthy smoothies as part of their lunch!
The day finished with a talk from Natasha Mina who is a ‘This Girl Can Champion’, and Kick Boxer who is enthused by female participation in sport. Her inspirational speech was greatly received by all at the event and it was fantastic to see Natasha’s enthusiasm. All students had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed their new experiences. The In It Together project will be arriving at Barr’s Hill School for year 9 and 10 girls in April 2018.
