School Sports Partnership
Posted Wednesday, 2 February 2011 at 14:22

James Stephenson heads up the School Sports Partnership in my constituency and does a fantastic job.

Thanks to computers, satellite TV, DVDs and the X box, many children today live a sedentary lifestyle. When childhood obesity has reached such a level that it is possible that some children have a lower life expectancy than their parents, it puts into perspective the importance of organised sport within schools.

In Flitwick leisure centre, I watched as schools from across the area spent a morning competing in gymnastics and it was a fantastic sight to see. The children spent an entire morning engaged in physical activity and as we know - for some - that may be the only exercise they get until the next PE lesson.

James and his team do a great job and if I have any criticism, it is that they have hidden their light under a bushel and been a bit slow letting everyone know just how hard they work.
