The M&S Girls Convention took place on Wednesday 19th June for 60 year 9 young women from five different Schools across the Island.
For the tenth consecutive year Marks & Spencer Guernsey sponsored the Girls Convention organised by the Guernsey Sports Commission. The aim was to give 60 young women a positive experience of sport/physical activity by offering a variety of activities that do not form part of their regular curriculum.
Activities included Bootcamps, Boxing, Fencing, Street Dance, Trampolining, Yoga and Zumba which gave the girls an opportunity to enjoy being active in a positive environment. Also included was a nutrition workshop and M&S provided a tasty healthy lunch for all.
Sports Development Officer, Jenny Murphy, said "we aim to support everyone to participate in sport and/or physical activity. We know there are barriers to overcome to achieve this, especially for young women. We want to do our best to support young women to overcome these barriers and we hope the Girls Convention provides a springboard to participation".
Overall the day was filled with fun and enjoyment and we received a lot of great feedback.
