Gateshead Girls Active 2010

On Thursday 25th February, 36 Year 9 girls from 9 Gateshead Secondary Schools took part in the 2010 Girls Active Roadshow Event at Broomley Grange Outdoor Activity Centre.  Those in attendance took part in a variety of activities including zip wire, night line, assault course, high ropes and climbing.

Activities were chosen to inspire and motivate participants whilst instilling a sense of teamwork and developing communication skills.   

Now in its third year, Gateshead Girls Active is a Leadership programme for Year 9 Girls.  Four Girls from nine of Gateshead Secondary Schools have been identified as Girls Active Co-ordinators.  Their task now will be to plan and design a Girls Active club specifically for the girls in their school.

All 36 girls will also be undertaking their Women Get So Go award as part of the project.  This is an accredited leadership programme which will be awarded to all those who successfully complete the project.
