On your marks. Get set. Go!” Pupils get into gear with help of Hartpury students

Children from various primary schools from across the Forest of Dean were able to hop, skip and jump into sporting action at an event delivered by Hartpury College students.

Twenty-five primary school aged pupils from Westbury-on-Severn, Mitcheldean and Woodside primary schools turned up at Dene Magna School in Mitcheldean for an athletics event.

The event was planned and run by Hartpury students who are in the final year of their BTEC diploma in Sport Coaching.

The children took part in a variety of track and field events, including javelin, long jump, hurdles and sprinting. All of them thoroughly enjoyed the day, with the Hartpury students on hand to give pointers at every activity.

Hartpury has a strong link with Dene Magna School that has been established with the support of Steve Price, the School Games Organiser for the Forest of Dean. The college has run many different events for primary schools in the district.

Dan Robinson, Subject Leader and Further Education Sports Coordinator at Hartpury, said: “This is an annual event and is the final of three festivals held for primary school children across the Forest of Dean. These events are run by our students, which helps them to achieve their Sports Leader award coaching badge.”

Lucy Windsor, one of the coaching students involved on the day, said: “I really enjoyed putting an event like this on for the children and it was obvious how much they enjoyed it. As coaches, we get a real buzz out of that and events like this help us to get experience which we can use in the future as we start out on our careers.”
