We have received some really positive feedback from parents at other schools throughout Sandwell who have been introduced to the gym through their children, it was great to note that many of these parents had heard about the facilities at Oldbury Academy so decided to come down and take a look. They have then committed to the gym and have started exercising with their children, which I feel is a great incentive moving forward encouraging a healthy lifestyle between parent and pupils whilst also promoting some of the great facilities we have at our school. Since our 6-week fitness programme finished a few weeks ago, we have had 29 pupils who have continued to use the gym even after the school holidays had come to an end. Promoting fitness to the younger community is a great message to spread across Sandwell, and it appears Oldbury Academy is at the forefront of this!
We had a total of 67 pupils attend from the following schools:
- Oldbury Academy
- Bristnall Hall High School
- Perryfields High School
- Sandwell Academy
- Hagley Catholic High School
