On Friday 1st the Academy hosted a Primary Badminton Festival for 54 primary pupils. The event was hugely successful and throughly enjoyed by all participants.

This was an excellent opportunity for Mounts Bay’s Sport Leaders to lead during an event and gain much needed experience for their qualification. Alongside them was the year 10 coaching group, both groups received fantastic feedback from the Primary teachers in how they engaged the younger pupils and made it an enjoyable experience.

Teams participated in ten stations gain points at each station, which was totalled up to give the overall scores. Teams consisted of six pupils three girls and three boys per school. The overall points were very close indeed.
