On Wednesday, 27th February The Beacon hosted a Girls’ Inspiration Festival. Four local primary schools (Kingswood, St Anne’s, Woodmansterne and Epsom Downs) invited 12 students from Years 4-6 to attend the festival. The event aimed to celebrate female physical activity and sport by undertaking a series of activities lead by our Year 10 girls. It started with a short talk and inspirational video that informed students to follow their dreams; we know that anything is possible.
The girls were then split into different groups and taken through three different activities lead by The Beacon students (Benchball, Trampolining and Dance). It was clear by the smiles on faces and enthusiastic buzz in both the gym and sports hall that all the girls were having lots of fun. Thank you to all the primary schools who attended the festival, The Beacon Year 10 girls for leading excellent activities and to all the exceptional primary school students who participated so well throughout the afternoon.
