The children in year 6 were very fortunate this week as their PE lesson was led by a visit Cornwall Hockey Coach. With the popularity of hockey on the rise following the Gold medal won by Team GB in Rio last year it was great to see the children having a go, especially those that had never had the opportunity to pick up a stick before.
At Penpol School we aim to give the children as much opportunity as possible to try something new, especially when we are able to bring in outside help and build our relationship with community clubs.
Through the sports governing body, EnglandHockey, we were able to bring in a Penzance club coach who also leads many of the coaching clinics for the County Youth sides. A fantastic opportunity which was enjoyed by all.
