Joe Wicks visits Springdale

5th April 2019

Nearly 18,000 schools applied for Joe Wicks The Body Coach to visit their school as part of his UK Schools HIIT tour. Springdale First School sent Joe daily tweets and hand written messages asking him to visit their school. Joe was totally overwhelmed by the response from Springdale First School and made a special detour from London in order to especially visit Springdale

Other local schools and schools within the Hamwic Education Trust were also invited to enjoy the experience, with over 700 children taking part on the school field. Joe delivered his HIIT exercise routine to both children and staff in the glorious sunshine on Friday 29th March. The BBC South News and Fire Radio Station attended to film the event and carried out interviews with some of the year 4 children which was aired on the 6.30pm local news that evening.

The amazing event was organised by Miss O’Rorke the school’s Sports Lead, and it will be remembered for a very long time!

"Pupils thrive at the school, developing outstanding attitudes to learning due to the excellent relationships they form with adults and the very practical, interesting and challenging lesson activities provided. Their excellent behaviour is evident in all aspects of school life."
