PL Primary Stars hosts Transition Day
The Community Trust’s Premier League Primary Stars project last week successfully hosted a transition day for Birchgrove Comprehensive that was attended by nearly 50 youngsters.
Designed to integrate the primary school pupils before they join Birchgrove Comprehensive in the future, the event saw students from six local schools come together at the Meadow View Sports Complex where they took part in an array of activities with the PL Primary Stars project.
A new programme for the 2016/17 season, Premier League Primary Stars aims to develop the skills and ambitions both on and off the sports field amongst girls and boys aged between 5-11 years old.
After learning about healthy eating and a balanced diet, the 49 children from Clydach Primary, Birchgrove Primary, Trallwn Primary, Craigfelen Primary, Craig Cefn Parc Primary and Talycopa Primary took part in a football tournament at the complex.
“Swansea City Community Trust and Birchgrove Comprehensive School got together to develop a fantastic transition day for their cluster primary schools,” explained Curtis Grant, the Premier League Primary Stars Area Co-ordinator for Neath Port Talbot. “It was designed to engage and increase social interaction for pupils who may join Birchgrove Comprehensive in the near future.
“The day was a great a success with all 49 pupils gaining an understanding of healthy eating before participating in our fun based 6-a-side festival, with the aim to increase participation levels and develop their love of the game,” he continued.
The youngsters were also treated to a visit by Club Ambassador Lee Trundle and U23 players Adnan Maric and Jordan Garrick who joined in with the round robin tournament and handed out certificates at the end of the day.
