Campion School Sports Leaders Get Crimebeat Funding

Campion School Sports Leaders successfully applied for funding from Crime Beat to support the training and development of younger Sports Leaders at Campion School.

Harmandip Singh year 9 and Tania Bawa year 8 led a training session together for 20 year 7 and 8 students.  The session involved them explaining what sports leadership was all about and what skills and qualities they would need to demonstrate if they wanted to be good leaders.  As a result of the grant students were able to received a starter leadership pack including bag, clipboard, notepad and pens.

Many of these students have now had the opportunity to lead a sporting event and put their leadership skills into practice.  Over 250 year 1 and 2 students took part in an Athletics competition at Edmondscote track that was made possible by the support of the new Campion School Sports Leaders.  A similar number of year 3 and 4 students have also benefited from Campion Leaders running their competition.

There will be many more opportunities over the summer term for students to develop their Sports Leadership and all students interested in being in the Campion School Sports Leadership Academy next year will be invited to attend a training session during the first week of the summer holiday to ensure they are prepared and ready for events starting in September.

The students were congratulated on their hard work in person by Mr Samuda, High Sheriff for Warwickshire, Ms Hopkinson, Chairman of Crimebeat and Mr Panesar, Head Teacher of Campion School.

“Warwickshire Crimebeat is delighted to have sponsored such a forward looking sport incentive.  All young people should be involved with team sports and this initiative is excellent  at pioneering sport  involvement.  Well done all those at Campion School in developing younger Sports Leaders.”
