South Bromsgrove at the Worcestershire ‘This Girl Can’ Event
On Thursday 7th March, 17 pupils from South Bromsgrove High, Years 9 and 10, participated in the Worcestershire ‘This Girls Can’ campaign held at North Bromsgrove High. ‘Worcestershire Girls Can’ is a vibrant celebration of active females.
The campaign directly tackles the fear of judgement that, according to research, stops so many women and girls from participating in sport and physical activity. The initiative shows us that we do not have to be the most graceful, the fastest or the strongest to benefit from all of the positive feelings that sport and physical activity can bring.
The campaign is designed to get women and girls moving regardless of their ability. Students had the opportunity to take part in non-traditional sports including, Clubbercise, Boxercise and Yoga. The girl’s thoroughly enjoyed the morning and are looking forward to incorporating the activities into future PE lessons!
