Last week during SMSC, all students learnt about the importance of Fitness and why having a healthy active lifestyle is so important. National Fitness Day was on Wednesday 23rd September 2020 and the day is a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles. National Fitness Day is the most active day of the year and the day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across the UK. It is a day when people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities come together to celebrate the fun of fitness. The day brings the nation together to remind us why it’s good to move, highlighting the role that physical activity plays in helping us lead healthier, happier lives both physically and mentally.
At Presdales we celebrated it over this whole week with a different year group each day joining the PE department and Presdales staff for a walk/jog/run at lunchtime on the field. It was great to see so many students and staff involved! A huge well done to those who joined us for some fitness and R1’s have been given to those who participated. During form time students also completed a form ‘Instagram’ page to promote National Fitness Day – please see the photo below for their fantastic quotes/inspiring pictures displayed in the Sports Hall.
