Sports Day for local Primary students raises cash for Sport Relief
Monday, 24 March 2014
Sixty local Primary School students joined forces with Sports students at Seevic College to raise funds for Sport Relief.
Students from Thundersley Primary School and Kingston Primary School visited the College on Friday 21 March to take part in the Sport Relief Mile and other sports activities.
The activities, which were co-ordinated by students at the College, included football, rugby, relay plus arts and crafts.
Students studying Vocational Sports qualifications at the College spent three months organising the event as part of their course, and its successful co-ordination formed part of their assessment.
Lucy Dalgarno, 17, who studies BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport & Exercise Science at the College and previously attended St Bernard High School in Westcliff said: “We’ve been organising this event since before Christmas, so to see it all come together today has been really good.
"We planned each of the activities and the timings of the events, taking in to account the different levels of abilities of each pupil. I’ve really enjoyed encouraged everyone to get involved, it’s been such a nice event to be a part of.”
Seevic College offers Sports qualifications from Level 1 to Higher Education, preparing students for a wide range of rewarding career opportunities.
A number of sports students completing their studies at the College in Summer 2013 progressed on to Russell Group universities to study Sport & Exercise Science.
