The Get Ahead Partnership organised the second Do Yourself Proud ‘Get Glowing’ event at the Ancholme Leisure Centre on Thursday 29th November 2018. The event was attended by thirteen primary and junior schools from North Lincolnshire, with nearly 350 children from across Key Stage 2 taking part. The event was aimed at children who were less active or less confident, who have not represented their school before.

The event ‘Get Glowing` was the first of its kind in the Humber region. This was delivered by the Get Ahead team and leaders from Sir John Nelthorpe School who were fantastic.

Throughout the day a variety of different games were experienced by all the children with a glow in the dark affect, these included; Badminton Target, Cone Nomination, Noughts and Crosses, Athletics, Superstars Personal Challenges, Ball Games, Keep the Balloon up and Water Bowling. This enabled each school to try and enjoy new activities in an arena where they were all amazed and excited at playing games in the dark. It was great to see children wearing clothes and trainers the glowed up to add to the special effects.

During the activities children represented their schools and showed great determination, honesty, self-belief and enthusiasm.

Post event, the smiles on children’s faces was excellent and receiving feedback from both teachers and children has been brilliant!
