Girls Active Festival
On Friday twenty girls from Year 5 and 6 attended the Tapscott Learning Trust’s Girls Active festival. The event took place at the West Ham Foundation and saw over 130 girls from across the Borough taking part in a range of physical activities.
There were four events – boxing, cricket, hockey and American football – with every girl taking part in each one. “I really loved the cricket event. It was so fun to try and hit the ball, and I made friends from other schools,” Vanessa in Year 5 commented.
At the end of the event four specialist sports coaches were tasked with choosing one girl from each of their activities who demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship and Ranelagh’s own Aleesha from 5T9 was chosen, winning an England Women’s World Cup cricket bat and ball! Overall the event was a huge success – well done girls!
