Primary students got expert tuition when they attended a basketball masterclass at Brooke Weston. As well as being led by Martin Spencer, an England mini-basketball coach, more than 20 Sports Studies students were on hand to help.
The Year 3 students from Oakley Vale, were given fun activities to introduce them to the sport, as well as honing their agility, balance and co-ordination. The 12 Young Sports Leaders and nine members of the Sixth Form girls' basketball squad from Brooke Weston joined in the fun and coaching, encouraging the primary students and leading small groups.
The hour-long session was the latest in a series that has seen students from both Oakley Vale and Our Lady's schools come along to take part in coaching sessions.
