Future Leaders’ Project Hits Sedgefield & SFX!

Date Posted: 04/02/2014 | Posted In: Latest news

QE’s Student Sport Management Team has continued to expand their Future Leaders’ Project to two more partner schools.

Recently, thirty-six Year 9 and Year 10 pupils from St Francis Xavier, Richmond and Sedgefield Community College attended a training day at QE to assist the schools in setting up their own Sport Management Teams. The training involved the pupils gaining experience in running a mini futsal event, promoting it, creating fixtures and a results system.  The QE students were able share their experience of setting up their Student Sport Management Team and grasped the opportunity to demonstrate further leadership skills.

Tom Urwin, PE teacher at Sedgefield Community College, commented:

“We had a fantastic time and our Year 9s and 10s all said how impressed they were with the QE students.  We look forward to taking the Project forward at school.”

The Sports Management Team, now has links with these two schools as well as Hummersknott and Longfield and hope to increase the number of schools involved in this initiative.
