No obstacle to learning at Comely Park
Learning no obstacle for NC Sport and Fitness students
NC Sport and Fitness students from Forth Valley College used their skills to create the perfect obstacle course for a primary school’s IPad fundraising event.
The team designed and delivered an obstacle course for the pupils at Comely Park Primary on Thursday 22 March and the whole school – including some teachers – clambered, jumped and manoeuvred their way to the end.
The fundraising event coincided with the student’s ‘Teamwork Through Sport and Recreation Activities’ unit and acted as a basis for their assessment. The children came out a class at a time and completed a set number of laps which corresponded with their primary – P1 completed one lap, P2 finished 2.
Gemma Moore, Acting Principal Teacher for the school, said: “Thank you to the Sports students from Forth Valley College for all the effort and help they gave us yesterday to do our sponsored obstacle course. We truly appreciated it, and the feedback from the pupils showed it has been such a positive experience for them!”
Paul Tannock, FVC class lecturer, said: “This was a wonderful opportunity to give the students some real life experience of delivering an event in the local community, whilst acting as an assessment for one of their units. The students worked incredibly hard on the day and hopefully the school benefits from the money raised. It was great to continue our relationship with Comely Park Primary and the children were a credit to their school with their efforts on the course.”
