Change for Life Festival in Oxford City

30 students attended Oxford City and Thame's 1st Change4life festival on Tuesday 31st January. The afternoon started looking at key facts around health and wellbeing. Afterward we then introduced the students to 2 new sports they had never played before, Boccia and Danish Long Ball.

With help from the fantastic sports council from The Oxford Academy, the students were taught the basic rules and skills of the games and then had the chance to play. It was great to see the students from the 3 different schools mixing together and having fun.

One teacher commented 'X is normally shy and quiet at school, here he has really come out of himself and enjoying taking part in the sports'. There were a number of similar comments made throughout the afternoon.

Our next change4life festival is scheduled for Thursday 25th May, if you would like to send any students along please contact Natalie Hayward for more information. natalie.hayward@theoxfordacademy.org.uk
