As part of a Sport England-funded project, Year 12 and Year 13 leaders and seven PE apprentices from Welwyn Hatfield School Sports Games Partnership hosted an indoors and outside event for 180 Year 4 ,5 and 6 students at St Mary’s Primary School, Welwyn.

The 18-activity event signified the launch of the ‘Living Leading Giving’ project, initiated by the Welwyn Hatfield Sport and Physical Activity Alliance.

Stanborough School’s Cherie Wiper, Monk’s Walk School’s Stuart Williams and Sir Frederic Osborn School’s Rhian Walsh and Jason Dodd led the project.

Chairman of WHSPAA, Dave Bartlett said: “It was great to see so many of the children enjoying themselves and learning so much in a relatively short time.”

The project will fund leaders attending sports courses and continuing professional development training projects like Child Protection and First Aid.

The leaders will then have the opportunity to be mentored in sports clubs, sports centres and other WHSPAA organisations.

In addition, to ensure the latest contact details of 160 clubs within the WHSPAA, the association is holding a draw for £50 and £100 for clubs that update their details on the WHSPAA website in December, with the draw taking place on January 7. Any problems should be emailed to
