Settle Primary School helps girls improve their sporting skills
8:00am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
Traditional girls’ sports are scoring highly at Settle Primary School.
Junior girls are enjoying an afternoon every week dedicated to playing hockey and netball, a move primarily designed to target girls’ sports in school.
Over the year a range of specialists will come into the school to work on girls’ sporting achievement.
“We have always played a lot of rugby and football and other traditionally boy sports at Settle Primary, so now is the turn of our girl athletes to be given the opportunity to develop their skills and learn new games and techniques,” said the school’s headteacher Richard Wright.
The girls in classes four, five and six will spend every Wednesday afternoon doing sports.
