To extend opportunities for learning in IGCSE Sports Science and also in core Physical Education we have set up a link between Aloha College and Manolo Santana Racquets club. This term the Year 10 girls have been aiming to improve their cardiovascular and muscular endurance in Manolo´s well-equipped fitness suite by participating in a variety of activities including: aerobics, resistance training using the weights and exercise balls, step aerobics, zumba and body combat. The IGCSE Sport Science groups for Years 10 and 11 and the Year 11 core PE group have been working on developing and refining their tennis skills and their ability to play tactical games. This is an excellent all-round opportunity to help raise the status of Physical Education for the school. Next term we will be extending these opportunities to other year groups.
