The first grant received was from the Tees Valley Community Foundation and that money will be used to pay for expert cheerleading coaching for their extremely popular afterschool cheerleading club. This money will also go towards paying for competition entries throughout the year, where the school team the ‘Lozzie Lions’ has been highly successful over the past four years.
The second grant received was from the Blue Spark Foundation which will be used to purchase new netball posts, balls and bibs to enhance netball activities both during lessons and extra curricular clubs. The school has recently had their outdoor netball courts re-surfaced and re-lined and hope to host a variety of after school fixtures and primary school festivals on there too.
The school is very grateful for the support from these two foundations as it will significantly contribute to students at Laurence Jackson School getting high quality PE lessons and many positive out of hours experiences.
