Students get a Taste for “What’s to Come” at the Sport & Activity Fair
Regent College students took part in a range of different activities as part of the wider activities during the Spring Term Review day. This day is used for students to meet their teacher or personal supervisor and discuss their progress and key targets. The Sport & Activity fair that ran alongside this, organised by newly appointed College Sport Maker, Alice Kempski, was designed to launch the beginning of her efforts to help get Regent College onto the sporting map.
The day was intended to give students a taste for a variety of activities, and give them the opportunity to complete a questionnaire detailing what activities they want to see take place at College. In the dance studio activities consisted of a female-only judo taster, Bollywood performances from the Studio 79 dancers, an open zumba workshop, a freestyle dance-off, and a breakdance class lead by Regent’s own Robert Moore. Meanwhile in the hall two table tennis tables were in use for free play and matches which included staff versus student games, and a basketball shoot-off supervised by Jon Stonebridge, England Basketball Development Officer attracted lots of attention. Winners of the female and male basketball shoot off, Maryama Ali and Babh Dalawardaza respectively, receive 3 tickets each to watch professional basketball team Leicester Riders play Mersey Tigers on the 2nd March. In addition, Tom Clegg, a representative from the Achievement Project which provides free or reduced cost sports courses to young people aged 16-18 in full time education, signed up students to a variety of qualifications including Level 1 Badminton Coaching and Level 2 Sports Leadership. Overall a great day was had by all, and a result a table tennis club, zumba class and basketball league will be starting at the college in the spring term.
