As part of the TGBS Physical Education curriculum, every student takes part in a block of teaching around Health-Related Fitness. As part of this, we look at components of fitness, methods of training and ways to link this to other physical activities in our lives. The aim of this is to encourage all our students to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Along HRF in lessons, we also have a fitness club after school on a Friday which is run by Mr. Woodall. Students from all year groups have attended in order to try and develop or maintain a healthy style as they begin to understand why it is so important.
“Being physically active can improve your mental health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve your ability to do everyday activities” – CDC
The physical and mental benefits to fitness and physical activity are endless and we are looking forward to more people participating in fitness club!
