Ten secondary schools from the Five Towns area, each sent 10 sports leaders from Years 9 and 10 to the inaugral Sports Leaders Conference at Minsthorpe Comminuty College.
 
Christian Malcolm opened the event with a truly motivational speech, followed by a representative from the Youth Sport Trust giving pupils an insight into how leadership contributes to national sporting initiatives.  Pupils were then trained to Level Two in Sports Hall Athletics, and made a mini-animation on what a good leader should look like.
 
Following this event, all pupils will be involved in running the district Sports Hall Athletics competitions in February.  They will also hopefully now have the confidence and skills to go on to lead other school and community events.
 

Great Britain have produced six sprinters who have broken the sub-10 second barrier. Sub-10, an exciting and intriguing documentary asks: is that good enough? Why haven't more sprinters broken the 10 seconds and what can we do to ensure more do so in the future?
 
Surrounded by some of GB's most inspirational sporting icons of the past 30 years and our future prospects for Rio 2016, DBA Sports' Storm Trentham hosted the private screening of the Sub 10 documentary and delivered the screening with flair, passion and a depth of knowledge that every single person was hooked on the production from the first word.
 
A fantastic production that inspired and challenged perceptions in the build up to Rio 2016 and our future medal prospects.

GODOLPHIN’S GOT TALENT

In aid of: Sporting Chance International  www.sportingchanceinternational.org

Godolphin’s Got Talent was a school talent show with performances including singers, dancers, acting and comedy sketches from the hugely talented girls of Godolphin School.  The show took place over 2 nights with a Junior Show and Senior Show to determine which 10 acts would make it through to the Final on the 17th March. Demand for tickets to the final were huge.  Unsurprisingly, they sold out 36 hours after they went on sale, even before the 2 other shows had taken place and the final acts were decided!  For this reason, the show was live-screened into the main hall for a packed room full of pupils and parents who did not want to miss out.

 

The Final saw the audience bid a hugely generous £18,000 on the auction lots which included signed Usain Bolt spikes, dance lesson with Flawless and 6 tickets to their tour, tea with Made in Chelsea, Rugby session with Christian Wade, Olympic tickets, a week skiing in Bel Playne, a week in a luxury villa in Spain and weekends away in Devon and Norfolk to name a few.   The top 3 acts from each night and the final were presented with a  cheque to donate to the charity of their choice.  The winner, Calypso Hetherington, was surprised by Nick Stewart with the chance to record 3 of her songs at his studio.

 

ZUMBATHON 2012

21 September 2012

In aid of: Peace One Day  www.peaceoneday.org 

Amount Raised: £500 Approx.

On the 21st September, all of the girls at The Godolphin School dressed in pink and black ready for the Zumbathon. The wonderfully energetic Alex Taylor and Charlotte Robertson, from Girls Love Fit, led a high-energy hour long zumba session for the whole school in aid of Peace One Day.  It was a great way to bring all the girls together to raise money for such a worthy cause and have a little dance in their lunch break to energize them for the rest of the day ahead.
