Local primary school children get fit with college students
Public Services students from The Manchester College’s Nicholls campus in Ardwick are the latest team to board the college’s Be Amazing bus, heading to a primary school in Wythenshawe to give the pupils a special PE lesson.
The group of students put their leadership and sporting skills to the test when they gave two groups of Year 4 and Year 5 pupils at Haveley Hey Primary School a games lesson to remember.
Stacy Partridge, Sports Coach at the school, said: “The students put together fantastic activities for the children to get involved in to keep fit and they have been amazing with the pupils. You can tell from the smiles on the childrens faces that they have been enjoying it. It’s also been really good for them to see what they could do in the future.”

After their lesson the group Year 5 pupils unanimously agreed that the college students “were amazing”, “really nice”, and “energetic”.
Hazel Hatton was one of the Public Services students who took the lessons, she said: “Today has been really enjoyable and a good experience, I’ve definitely learnt new skills today.”
The public services students have now joined catering, construction and performing arts students at the college who have been out and about this week supporting local residents and communities as they put their newly acquired skills to the test as part of Be Amazing Manchester Week.
