United Learning’s Sport and Exercise Ambassadors Jenny Pacey and Wayne Gordon – “Pace and Go” made a recent visit to Carter Community School. Jenny, a former international track and field athlete and ex-international bobsleigher Wayne now work as sports models, presenters and celebrity personal trainers. The pair are also known for their roles as Doom and Enigma on the popular TV show ‘Gladiators.’
On visiting Carter, the dynamic duo put a group of Year 7 Pupil Premium students through their paces with a ‘Gladiator’s’ style workout, which also gave them an inspiring and educational insight into health and well-being. The students left the session with a more positive outlook on life, feeling motivated and ready to grasp future opportunities that come their way.
During the visit, the school’s Sport Leaders also took part in a practical leadership session on fitness warm ups, drills and circuits helping them to develop their communication, teamwork and organisational skills, which they will now utilise further in school within PE lessons and extra-curricular clubs.
Following the visit, some of these leaders have now been chosen to officiate at the Sainsbury’s School Games Poole Rounder’s Qualification Tournament at be held here at Carter Community School, as well as supporting our Sports Day to be held during Pledge Week.
