  • Multiskills Festival

    multi_skills_060411_001On Wednesday 6th April, from 11.00am to 12.30pm, the Sturminster Newton Leisure Centre played host to a Multiskills Festival.

     

    It was organised by Mr Karl Whittick, P E Co-ordinator here at Yewstock, who was ably assisted in the setting up and running the event by Sports Leaders from Yewstock and Blandford Schools.

     

    multi_skills_060411_002About 50 students from 4 schools - Beaucroft, Linwood, Westfield and Yewstock participated in skills aimed to provide Agility, Balance and Co-ordination (A,B,C), whilst having fun.  There were 12 stations set up around the sports hall including ball skills, throwing beanbags, balancing on a beam catching a basketball, jumping, hopping, speed stacking cups and many others.

     

    This was the first Multiskills Festival to be held and proved to be a great success and all the students thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hopefully it will be an annual event.
