MORE and more girls want to be part of sport and exercise classes, with regular attendance at Netball, Football, Dance and Volleyball clubs at Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School.
‘’Sweating like a pig, feeling like a fox’’ and ‘’I kick balls, deal with it’’ are in the minds of these girls, which is certainly changing attitudes as sport has been on the rise.
Director of Sport and Performance Chris Burbidge said: “These girls are a reminder to us all that exercising has a positive impact on the body and mind. Just exercising 30 minutes every day, that includes walking, can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50 per cent and lower your risk of early death by up to 3 per cent.
Physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress. What sport or exercise clubs will you be part of this term?”
