Sixth Formers create fitness challenges for NCS project
Sixth Formers create one-minute fitness challenges for NCS social action project
In the summer holidays, Bourne Academy have students in Year 11 and 12 who give up their time during the holidays to participate in a two-week summer programme with the NCS (National Citizen Service). This is a great scheme that is designed to develop new skills and improve confidence as well as help students become more independent and responsible citizens.
This summer, Sixth Formers Matthew Hay, Archie Arnold and Kameron Dowse are making a difference in the local community with a social action project to raise money for the Evie Dove Foundation.
As a team, they have devised a series of fitness and wellbeing challenges to see how many push-ups, pull ups, sit-ups, burpees can be done in one minute or how many punches you can land on the punch bag in one minute. With Archie and Kameron both studying Sport & Physical Activity at Sixth Form – they have used their subject knowledge when creating the challenges.
The charity event will be held at The Universal Fitness Centre (Cherry Holt Road, Bourne PE10 9LA) on Thursday 11th August 2022 from 12pm to 4pm and the students are inviting the local community to take part. To help raise money for the Evie Dove Foundation it will cost £2 per challenge with the choice of entering just once or as many times as you would like!
Matthew Hay, Year 12 student at Bourne Academy said “We have decided to support the Evie Dove Foundation as we believe every child should be able to reach their dream career path no matter their background or financial status.”
The aim of the Evie Dove Foundation is to help sick children and save young lives by sponsoring the further education of talented and passionate paediatric medical professionals. With their help and financial support, young people will develop their skills and expertise to provide cutting edge medical and pastoral care when children and their families need it most.
