.............................................................................................................................Congratulations to all the Leadership Academy students that attended their launch day at Blackland Farm on Wednesday 24th February 2010.
The students got off to a 'flying start' in the morning, taking part in 'All Aboard', 'High Logs' and 'Problem Solving', lots of fun was had and even a few fears were conquered!
This was the first time the Academy students had met each other, and Year 10 students from all of our Partnership Schools attended; St Paul's, Oakmeeds, Downlands, Warden Park, Sackville, Imberhorne and Oathall.
The students spent the afternoon planning festivals that will be delivered for our link Primary schools during the Summer Term.
We are delighted with the Academy students and are certain 'great things' will come from them!
Miss Gyngell, Mr Franks and Mr Hill.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE JSLA STUDENTS FROM LAST YEAR FOR PASSING THE LEVEL 1 SPORTS LEADERS COURSE
Congratulations to Jenny Woodhouse, Phill Stagg, and Alice Pinder who finished as the top 3 in the first ever leader league. The league was set up by Steve Hill, SSCO for Imberhorne, to give recognition to the fantastic work and effort put in by the brilliant Imberhorne sports leaders.
Jenny and Alice mainly contributed within the sport of netball, whilst Phill made a major contribution to the Primaryship Football League with the local primary schools. The top prize of £50 worth of sports vouchers went to Jenny, the second prize of £30 to Phill, and Alice received £20 for coming third in the league.
They were all a massive help in making sure the Imberhorne School Sports Programme was such a success last year!
Sport Leaders from Imberhorne Secondary School and Play leaders from Halsford Park Primary School teamed up for a day of skipping coaching on Friday 11th September.
As part of the primary school's initiative to increase the quality of provision for children at breaktimes, the leaders enjoyed a joint session with Harold Galley, a coach from Skipping Workshops, Lisa Page from Halsford Park and Miss Hughes from Imberhorne.
The Leaders then had to put their new knowledge into practice by teaching these skipping games to every class from Halsford Park.
The sessions were much enjoyed and have already had an impact on the playtime experience for many children, sparking their enthusiasm for these energetic and sociable games.
Below are some of the comments from Imberhorne Sports Leaders who helped out at the Parallel Youth Games (2009):
“I really enjoyed helping at the Parallel Youth Games and it was nice to help entertain those who are less fortunate than us. I learnt how you had to adapt the game depending on the disability such as the ramp in new age curling and I also learnt that a simple game can still be really fun. I thoroughly enjoyed my day on Wednesday, it was really good.”
“I was working with the tennis group which meant we were scoring the game, collecting the balls and also running errands. I found the day really interesting and would like to do it again sometime. I thought that the day went really well and I feel that the participants enjoyed themselves and got a lot out of the day. The participants were all really polite and thankful for us helping them (they kept telling us). Thank you for taking us.”
“I thought that the session went well as we were all organized and listened well to the sports coordinators. I think that we were friendly to the children and respected them. I learned how to help the children if they were having difficulties with the curling and it was worth the hard work when they got it right.”
