Young Tritons and Mini-Mermaids Running clubs

We have worked with Merseyside Sports Partnership to run the Young Tritons and Mini-Mermaids running clubs within our school this term.

The Young Tritons programme aims to challenge the typical description of strength that boys are exposed to, whilst encouraging them to take part in movement and activity, showing them how being active benefits their mental, physical and emotional health. Our programmes consist of group discussions, games, movement and activities.

Mini Mermaids is increasing self-esteem and confidence in girls whilst encouraging them to take part in movement and activity, showing them that being active benefits their mental, emotional and physical health. Our programmes consist of group discussions, journal work, games, movement, structured workouts and activities.

At the end of our 7 week programme, we organised a 5k run for the children to take part in to show off all of their hard work! The children ran 15 laps of the school grounds and were cheered on by their parents/guardians and all of our children from Y1-6. Every child who took part in the programme and 5k run have done themselves, their parents and our school proud! Well done to everyone!
