In October 2009, the new additions to the Campsmount Leadership Academy set up a new programme to assist with the delivery of the out of school hours PE programme that had been set up in the pyramid family of schools.
Students selected which clubs they would like to assist at and a timetable was designed for them to go in and deliver these activities to students ranging from Year 1 through to Year 6. All students have been completing either their Level 1 in sport or dance and their level 2 in community sport, they have used skills learnt from these sessions to assist staff in delivering these sessions.
Over the months the students have grown in their confidence and ability to deliver and at times the students have been delivering parts of sessions, under the guidance of the Primary School Staff. A great success has been the role of dance leaders as they have played a key part in preparing their teams of students at each of the Junior Schools in preparation for the Campsmount Dance Show later in the year.
Again this is another great step in the right direction for our pyramid in taking Leadership and Volunteering forward!
