College learners get set to get fit for Colleges Week
Learners at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London will be getting fit, trying out new sports and raising money for charity as part of a huge, nationwide sports day.
Across the country, learners will be taking part in Britain's biggest sports day fundraising event - showcasing students' sporting skills and achievements and promoting Colleges as centres of sporting excellence.
The event will take place at the College’s Enfield Centre, Hertford Road, between 12.30pm and 3.30pm on Wednesday 10 November and will raise funds for charity by asking students and staff to contribute £1 to enter.
Learners will be able to try their hand at a new sport, from table tennis to karate, test their strength and fitness or even show off their footballing ‘freestyle’ skills for the cameras. For those who just want to watch the action, the College’s Football Academy team will be playing a match, kicking of at 1pm, and are looking forward to some extra support.
Tulay Rashid, the College’s Assistant Director for this area, said: “we have a huge range of sport and fitness courses for young people who want a career in the area. We also run a comprehensive range of fun and casual sports and other activities through our enrichment programme. This day is about celebrating both ways of getting involved – and the contribution our College can make to our learners’ lives.”
The College’s Vice Principal of Curriculum and Learner Experience, Jane O’Neill, said: “We have some really talented sports stars among our students, and we’re proud to celebrate their achievements. This day is also about encouraging everyone to get fit by taking advantage of the brilliant facilities and programme of activities that we provide.”
