Bryn Gwalia students enjoy after school activities
Students from Ysgol Bryn Gwalia in Mold have been enjoying some after school activities thanks to a grant from Welsh Government.
The school is opening up for three evenings a week so that the pupils can engage in activities such as boxercise, street dance and aerobics. These sessions are absolutely free and include a healthy snack too!
The initiative is proving to be very popular with youngsters and places are snapped up quickly.
This opportunity has been made possible by a grant from Sport Wales through their Active Education Beyond the Classroom fund. The aim of this funding is to give every child access to sport and physical activity opportunities beyond the school day.
Head teacher, Lorraine Dalton, said:
“We hope that by supporting learners through providing a range of sporting and artistic activities as well as giving them the opportunity to mix and socialise after school, that this will improve pupil learning and well-being whilst also building up relationships within the community.”
With comments like the ones below from the participants, it isn’t hard to see that the programme has been a great success:
“I like coming to dodgeball because it's good fun, I get to see my friends and it's well run.”
“The clubs are a great idea because they keep me fit and healthy and they are free too.”
“'I come to club because I don't want to be bored at home and it gives me something to do.”
“I enjoy dance because it's fun and free. It also keeps me fit.”
“Having Michelle from Aura in is really good because she understands the rules of dodgeball.”
