Longbenton High School students have enjoyed their first two Friday 'breakfast club' basketball sessions with the inspirational coach Chris Applewhite, from the Newcastle Eagles Community Foundation. Chris has been putting the students through their paces with a series of fun drills to improve dribbling, passing and shooting. It has been great to see just how much the students are enjoying the sessions and the progress they are making already. Thank you to Chris and the Newcastle Eagles Community Foundation for putting the sessions on and for this opportunity for our students. Well done to all the students involved; your early morning commitment is certainly demonstrating our school values of determination, ambition and positivity. The demand for the sessions has been so positive we are hopefully looking to put on another breakfast club after half term!
