5×60 is a welsh government initiative as part of the Vale of Glamorgan’s Healthy Living department. Their aim in school is to at get pupils active and hooked on sport for life. In St Cyres, pupils are encouraged to complete 60 minutes of exercise 5 times a week. The 5×60 initiative runs extra-curricular activities during lunchtimes and after school.
At St Cyres the team of Gareth East (Healthy Living Officer) and Sam Gordon (Activity Co-ordinator) provide a variety of sports to try. These include dodgeball, American Baseball, American Football and Table Tennis. If there is a sport you would like to suggest, email Gareth at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can follow on twitter @5x60stcyres.
The programme also offers the opportunity for pupils to become coaches. This way pupils can be involved in sports by becoming Active Young Leaders (Year 9), Young Ambassadors (Year 10 & 11) and Coaches of the Future (Year 12 & 13). For more information please contact Gareth.
