All work and no play makes for a dull boy – or girl – as the saying almost goes.
The Sir John Gleed School, Spalding, understands that and so makes sure to mix serious study with opportunities for fun and rewards.
Picture 1: A total of 39 Year 10 students, alongside their BTEC Sport Level 2 qualification, completed the Sports Leaders UK Level 1 course.
They had to plan and run the South Lincolnshire Primary Football Festival, plan and lead a one-hour coaching session and look into fair play in sport, the role of officials and progression options open to them.
A certificate for Callum Pite, who died at the start of the year, but who had completed the criteria for the Sports Leaders Level 1 Qualification, was accepted by his mother.
Picture 2: Continued hard work by 68 Year 9 students was rewarded with a trip to Alley-Catz Bowling in Spalding.
