Summer Sports Programme

Community Project

Another Successful week of the Summer Sports Programme Completed!

Well, what a Summer!

The 2021 Summer Schools Activity Programme has come to a close and what amazing fun it has been. Children from Copperfield, Painter’s Ash, Springhead and Lawn have between them had over 450 days of sports, games and laughter provided by the excellent coaches from HW Schools Skills.

The coaches have been amazing, challenged at times by the different levels of ability and the different ages of the children. They have excelled in motivating the children, providing interesting and exciting activities and many, many days of fun-filled activity that has seen the children develop new skills and new confidence.

Trustees from Northfleet Central CIO joined each school for the last hour and it was very clear by the enthusiasm and sheer enjoyment on the face of each and every child that the experience had been well worth the effort it took to organise and coordinate the sessions.

Each child received a medal and a certificate, a proud moment for them as they went forward to be presented Olympic style and to be cheered on by all of their friends.

Our thanks to the various school staff who helped with the arrangements, to the coaches for their incredible dedication and energy, but above all our thanks to the children for their laughter, their friendliness and their willingness to take on new challenges. To see the older ones, encourage the younger ones, to watch the sportsmanship and team spirit was a great honour.

The activities were totally free for all children and NCCIO paid for any costs incurred by the schools. We are grateful for the financial support provided by Kent Community Fund.

Thanks children of Northfleet you were all stars!
