Get Ahead came into school and led a Get Glowing event. All the Year 1 and 2 children had a great time completing different sporting activities in the hall with glowing lights. Here are some quotes from the children about the event: “Wow, epic!”, “It made me feel so happy!”, “It was crazy!”, “It made me feel excited.” 

We asked the children what they thought the  best bits were and they said: “The lights”, “Rolling the ball to hit the glowing cones.”, “The glowing badminton.” 

Total Fund Allocated: £20,900
