School for girls

National Fitness Day

On Wednesday, 50 Year 8 students participated in a National Fitness Day sporting event in the Guildhall Courtyard.  Local school children had been invited to join in the national celebration of fitness and physical activity, where celebrities from the world of dance and sport put them through their paces!

Dame Darcey Bussell led a dance fitness session, ably assisted by Colin Jackson, and then Max Whitlock organised gymnastic team games, with further sessions from Hertfordshire Mavericks netballers, and hockey players from the Alex Danson Academy.

The girls had a thoroughly wonderful morning of sport and a number of them were interviewed for Channel 5 and BBC Newsround, who were both covering the event. Thank you to all who participated and made this such a worthwhile and memorable event.
