Active Kids Do Better

Nike, Youth Sport Trust & Discovery Education host event for Birmingham Primary Schools as part of nationwide Active Kids Do Better programme

Teachers from across Birmingham came together at a special event last week to help the region’s primary schools. 

A Lewisham teacher has received a national award from two top British athletes after helping his pupils to be more active.

Edward Pinks, from St Mary Magdalen Catholic Primary School, has been recognised as a Gold Active Teacher, one of the UK’s first. He was presented with the award by Paralympian Aled Davies and sprinter Bianca Williams, who made a special visit to his school today.

The athletes led a lively assembly where they shared inspiring stories of competing for Great Britain. They also took part in lessons and spent time meeting with pupils and teachers.
