At Hasland Junior School, we want to facilitate the opportunity for children to engage in a range of sporting events and extra-curricular activities. Qualitative studies have found that extra-curricular activities give young people the confidence to interact socially with others, extend their social networks beyond existing friendship groups, and provide them with new skills and abilities. Some also perceive them as important for their long-term career aspirations as well as useful in building stronger university and job applications. Above all, young people see extra-curricular activities as a chance to have fun, unwind and relieve the stresses of an ever-evolving childhood.
I hope you enjoy keeping up to date with the sporting success of our pupils.
