Sport England and GB Athletes are supporting Change 4 Life in their new programme 10 Minute Shake Ups. This is aimed at Year 7 students but I believe it is a great way to help everyone in your family enjoy getting active together! Public Health England recommends 60 minutes of physical activity per day for young people, so let’s make a great start to the term and get moving for 10 minutes with the help of Disney characters!
In the last week of Summer term the PE Department took Year 7 to the World Para Athletics Championships held at the London Stadium in Queens Elizabeth Olympic Park. This was a fantastic opportunity for students to experience the atmosphere of an Olympic Stadium and see and cheer on our British Para Athletics team. All staff and students walked to and from the stadium (with Miss Moore’s group winning the quickest time!), which was a fantastic effort and great way to get everyone’s steps up and improve fitness. The sun shone on the day and students positively represented Lister Community School in which we were very proud of. Thank you to all staff involved in helping the day run smoothly. We hope to have inspired some of our Year 7 students be the next champion! If any student would like to find out about Athletics clubs in the borough please see the PE Department.
