Featherby Juniors impressed by a visit from Skip2bfit
Many, many thanks for yesterday's amazing input from Dwayne.
I knew that your team were good but he was exceptional in every aspect. From the moment he entered the building there was an enthusiasm and tangible exuberance. He led all of the sessions with equal amounts of enthusiasm and made every single child feel welcome and more importantly worthy of the experience. During the lunch session Dwayne kept us entertained in the staffroom and joked with our mealtime supervisors. All the adults in the school have asked if he can come in again, given the chance, and failing that we will employ him to teach in the school.
Dwayne has left a lasting impression on many of our children and has made your skip2bfit programme come alive. There is definitely a sustainability to the programme that is so easy to promote now that the initial input has been so enthusiastically received.
Please pass on our everlasting thanks to Dwayne for providing our children with such a brilliant day of hard work, fun and education.
The skip2bfit programme has been running at Featherby for many years now and you can regularly see children skipping on the playground. PE and healthy lifestyles are so important to everyone associated with Featherby Junior school and the workshops led by the Skip2bfit team always re-energise our passion for fun, hard work and a healthy body and mind. The digital counter skipping ropes create that healthy competitiveness both of the self and between individuals; a great lesson for life's challenges.
Keep up the excellent work John and we'll be in touch soon to lead a junior box2bfit session.
