Club Doncaster Sports College recently held an exciting open event as part of the first Doncaster Remake Learning Festival, for students currently in Year 10.
Over 40 students were in attendance last week, for a free taster event at the Sports College, where they were given an insight into what the practical lessons would be like if they enrolled on one of the many courses available.
Arriving at the Eco-Power Stadium, students got a glimpse of the facilities on offer, before heading to the astroturf pitches with staff members from the Sports College, to take part in a range of activities.
They were split into 3 groups and sampled a mini football session, a competitive game of boules with a range of difficulty levels and a mini tournament of normal tennis and football tennis.
The Doncaster Remake Learning Days Festival took place over a 10 day period, with activities and events being held across Doncaster, at free or low cost for families, designed to build knowledge and spark creativity in the run up to and during the half term holidays, with the aim to have people rediscover the love for learning outside the classroom, discover new hobbies or even future career options.
Principal of the Sports College, Adi Turnpenny said: “It was great to welcome everyone to our Year 10 taster day and showcase what Club Doncaster Sports College has to offer.
“It was also fantastic to be part of the Doncaster Remake Learning Days Festival and help spark a passion amongst young people for a career in sport.
“The event was a great success and we are already looking forward to hosting an event in the next one!”
