#HSGDailyChallenge

Well done to anyone to who took part in last weeks challenges. If you completed the Week One Grid, simply email this to us and we will forward it on to James Cross.

James Cross, the School Games organiser for the New Forest, has invited us to take part in the #HSGDailyChallenge initiative. It is a fantastic opportunity for the children to keep active during these difficult times. All activities are designed based upon achieving individual personal bests and there is no emphasis on competition between students. However, they will be offering prizes for schools that achieve the highest student participation!
