SATURDAY GYMNASTICS CLUB
I am pleased to inform you that Gymnastics Club is on a Saturday morning, starting at 9 a.m. and finishing at 10 a.m. We would ask that pupils are dropped off and collected promptly.
The purpose of this letter is to give you details regarding the arrangements for Gym Club. Pupils will be coached Mrs Powell, who is a qualified coach (with the relevant DBS), that older students are familiar with.
First aid arrangements are that, for minor problems a first aid kit will be available for use, and parents may then be contacted if it is necessary for the individual to be collected. In the case of anything more major the emergency services will be called, the parents of the pupil ‘phoned and following this it may then be necessary for the others to also be collected too and ‘phone calls will be made to arrange this.
To support this we ask that you complete the slip below with a contact number that can be used in an emergency for the hour that Gym Club is on. You are more than welcome to stay and watch the club if you wish.
On the day students have permission to come to school wearing their school PE Kit or leotards. They may require a drink.
The students need to meet outside reception at 8:55a.m.

5×60 is a Welsh Assembly Government and Sport Wales initiative aiming to encourage young people to take part in 60 minutes of exercise, 5 times a week.
To achieve this, a 5×60 Officer is based in every secondary school in Wales to oversee the project. The pupils themselves take ownership of the activities on offer in the timetable, and can influence when the activities take place, for example during lunchtimes or after school.
The activities on offer in Powys schools can vary from traditional competitive sports such as football and hockey, to informal recreational activities such as table tennis, badminton and squash.
Outdoor adventure activities are also available, for example archery, mountain biking, surfing and rock climbing. Holiday periods are also catered for, with Summer Holiday Fun Weeks, Easter Golf Camps and Dance Camps to name just a few.
In addition, the 5×60 Officer recruits older pupils and sixth form students to help deliver sessions. In return for their commitment and dedication to the project, coaching courses are arranged and part funded for them, which allows them to gain valuable experience and vocational qualifications.
Each officer also works to provide as many club links and ongoing opportunities as possible in order to encourage lifelong participation.
