Supporting Sport Relief

Date Posted: 03/04/2018 | Posted In: Latest news

Students at QE are always proud to support charity events and Sport Relief 2018 was no exception. This year, the Sport and Leisure department organised three lively, lunchtime activities to raise money for this wonderful cause and encourage both students and staff to inject some physical exercise into their daily routines. The first activity was a dodgeball competition with ten teams participating, including a team of staff members. After a fierce battle, the B Team Football Boys emerged as the overall winners. A Zumba session took place the following afternoon, with students and staff being guided by PE teacher, Jane Spink, in an energetic lunchtime workout. Finally, the College took part in the Sport Relief Mile, using the local area to contribute to the nationwide campaign and complete as many laps as possible in the time allotted.

Student, Emily Makepeace, explains: ‘It was great to see members of the College working and competing together for such a good cause. Everybody enjoyed the events and put a lot of effort in to ensure their success’. Paul Carroll, teacher of Sport and Leisure at QE, adds: ‘The students demonstrated brilliant planning skills throughout the week, organising a variety of activities which suited everybody’s taste. The events will contribute greatly to their overall Sport and Leisure coursework grade and they managed to raise a significant amount for Sport Relief. They should be extremely proud of themselves’.
