ARGYLE Community Trust are one of eighteen clubs throughout the UK taking part in the +Sport Move and Learn Project. The project focuses on valuable nutrition knowledge for youngsters aged 9-10 (Year 5), whilst giving them a chance to participate in football, handball and dodgeball.
We are delighted to add five new schools to the project in the summer term, taking our delivery to over 30 schools across the Plymouth and East Cornwall area. The schools joining +Sport Move and Learn are Widewell Primary, Whitleigh Primary, St Peters RC Primary, Holy Cross Primary and Drake Primary.
Project manager Stew Walbridge said: “The project has a real positive impact on young lives and it is so rewarding to see the change in their diet from week one to week six. Teachers from the schools have commented on how important it is for a professional football club to participate in the running of such a worthwhile subject, with the children more likely to take information on board from role models.”
Weston Mill Primary school have now set up their own school team after completing the project, suggesting that the scheme has brought a new boa0t for the school to restart a team they have now gone without for a number of years.
