  • Sport to the Beat duo fight child obesity

    Filed under: News — Posted by: Linda on May 29, 2011

    Children at a school in Castleford have been raising their energy levels and increasing fitness, during a series of exercise sessions. Sport to the Beat was launched by Clayton Flower and his sister Sadie, who runs the Sadie Flower School of Dance. She also took part and won the television show Strictly Dance Fever in 2005. The use of tracks by Michael Jackson are just one of the reasons why pupils at Park Junior School are eager to take part in the sessions.

    Sport to the Beat have worked hard with every pupil in the school over a two day period, culminating in the launch of an after school club, which has proved to be extremely popular with the pupils. Sports which include boxing, tennis, football and golf are combined with dance to encourage increased activity levels, to fight against child obesity.

    The two day sessions included a variety of sports, coming to a spectacular finish with a funky dance routine to the eighties hit Beat It, by Michael Jackson. The head teacher, Kath Levey said:

    It was great fun, the children thought it was fantastic and enjoyed it thoroughly. There was lots of smiley faces and sheer enjoyment.

    A memorial fund set up by the family of Richard Tennant, who died at the age of 24 in 2008 as a result of serious head injuries, paid for the sessions. The Flower duo hope to deliver even more of the activity sessions to other schools across the region, in conjunction with West Yorkshire Police.
