At Belper school, there are lots of extra curricular activities open to all students no matter what age or ability.Some of these opportunities are found in the P.E department.
There are a varity of different after school and lunch time clubs available to all students to attend, creating an chance for students to practace and develop skills in a range of sports. These sports include;Netball, Hockey, Football, Rugby and Table Tennis.
As most sports are suited to different parts of the year, the clubs that are open to students change with the seasons and therefore the weather. For example, as Hockey is best suited to the winter months, this is when the club is run.
The clubs are run by teachers specially suited or trained in that particular sport, this helps the atendees recieve the best possible coaching and tips for improvement.
Getting involved in an extra curricular activites in the P.E department can be a great way to help keep fit and healthy, but can also be a good way to fill any spare time that would otherwise be wasted. However, despite this just being a fun, positive way to spend time doing a productive activity. When you attend a club in the P.E department and prove youself to be a consistant, trustable member of the club, you may be given the opportunity to play in a fixture in your sport and represent the school in a team. This is a great way to not only gain confidence in yourself and your abilities, but to see for yourself what it is like to play in a game against people that you may not otherwise know.
Through attending these clubs there are many rewards and awards that you may recieve. These include Sports person of the month for a certain teacher or an award for outstanding achievement or effort at the end of year award ceremony for your year. But this does not mean that you can only get these accolades in the P.E department. each department in Belper has their equivelent to these awards.
Tacking these opportunities is a great way to gain new experiences and skills, make new friends and possibly a brighter future.
