WW Martin helps support Minilympics for schools in Kent
Canterbury Christ Church
University (CCCU) and The King's School have worked in partnership to deliver the hugely successful Canterbury Minilympics.
Ten local primary schools were invited to take Year 4 pupils to King's for a day of exciting sporting activities. 160 children attended the event, taking part in athletics sessions; practising skills of running, jumping and throwing within a fun teamwork setting.
The Sport, Physical Education
and Research team from the University also gave a talk on healthy eating,
while King's student Millie Knight (Gold Medalist, at the World Para
Alpine Skiing Championships) and coach Jen Wilson (triple Olympian
Hockey player) were there to share their experiences of what it takes
to reach the world sporting stage.
