Girls Get Active at This Girl Can Festival


On Tuesday 29th June we had a fantastic day running a This Girl Can Festival for girls in year 7, 8 & 9 at the Sportspark at the UEA.

The aim of the festival was to inspire girls to be more active by exposing them to a range of activities that they might not have experienced before.

Girls from the following schools took part;

Girls stayed in their school bubbles throughout the festival and had the chance to take part in four exciting activities delivered mainly by female instructors;

  • CrossFit
  • Roller Skating
  • Nutrition
  • Tai Chi

Miss Radley from City Academy Norwich commented;

“Our girls loved all of the activities and were really engaged throughout the day”

Miss Rock from Jane Austen College added;

“Excellent variety of activities, very interesting and insightful for the girls to experience.”

Lisa Hunter from the SSP said;

“We must say a massive thank you to Skate Norfolk, CrossFit Spitfire, Chelsea Lea Nutrition and Suzy from the SSP for delivering outstanding, inspiring sessions to the students.  From Roller skating, to Tai Chi, Nutrition and Well Being to strength training from CrossFit, the girls challenged themselves and rose to the occasion.”
