Westminster pupils move more with help from Team GB sprinter

St Vincent's Catholic Primary School pupils received a special visit to their rooftop playground from Jeanette Kwakye.

Sixty children from St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School received training from athlete mentor, Jeanette Kwakye, in how they can be young leaders, move more, and teach their peers the benefits of physical activity.

The session was delivered by national children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust, thanks to funding from Virgin Sport and its fundraisers in the British 10k event last year.

Jeanette Kwakye, athlete mentor for the Youth Sport Trust, said: 

Coming to a school like this and seeing what they have been able to do up here and how happy the kids are is great. I have never been to a school that has this much space in such a creative way.

Ninety children at the school also received Healthy Movers at Home packs to help them keep moving at home. The activities are designed to develop balance, movement using objects in a fun and engaging way. The packs feature PJ Masks superheroes Catboy, Owlette and Gekko.
