The Dorset Bronze Ambassador programme is still going strong in the Poole area, see below details of what's been going on or how to get involved.
Primary Leadership Academies have gone mobile in Poole this Autumn ensuring the leadership and training opportunities are still on offer across the area. Bronze Ambassadors and Play Leaders are invaluable in many Primaries across the county. They are used for all manner of activities; be play leaders at break and lunch to promote physical activity. Be sports councils and shape PE and physical activity. Helping run extra curricular clubs, etc, all whilst being a role model to promote sport, health and physical activity within their schools.
The current national situation means that the Poole and East Dorset Primary Leadership Academies running to its usual format is unsuitable to do at present! Schools all under one roof, 240+ children being mixed in small groups with children from other schools across 2 days.
So this year, the Primary Leadership Academy, used to train your Bronze Ambassadors has gone mobile. A condensed version of the training package has been compiled into a 2 hour, bubble friendly, socially distanced workshop enabling me to visit your school to work with and train your Bronze Ambassador candidates. Schools with experienced staff or that have been unable to accept visitors have begun training their Bronze Ambassadors themselves.
So far I have visited the following schools to train Bronze Ambassadors; Hamworthy Park, Lytchett Matravers, Oakdale, Haymoor, Heatherlands and St Mary's. The following schools have trained their own Leaders this year; Baden Powell, Broadstone First, Bishop Aldhelms, Canford Heath, Merley First and Ocean Academy.
If your school isn't listed above, please get your schools PE coordinator to contact me for a visit or the digital resource pack and tshirts.
Poole SGO Area
Welcome to Poole School Games, my name is Sam Cox. I'm based at Carter Community School. I have been working as a School Games Organiser for 6 years and grew up in the Poole area myself. I love my job and take pride in it every day. We are trying to achieve our mission of providing opportunities for all in Sport, PE and physical activity so that all students can enjoy and succeed. Here in Dorset the School Games Organiser team have developed some fun games, resources, challenges and video's to ensure that we can keep active and healthy during this time of Isolation. These are some great ways to contribute towards the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
