CLAVERING GOLD: #WeCanPlay
We were very excited to win a national competition linked to our commitment to promoting girls’ participation in PE and sport, particularly girls' football, through the #WeCanPlay initiative. The main prize for winning the competition was a visit from Manchester City WFC player and England international Lucy Bronze.
It was such an amazing day!
'I had a great day in Hartlepool; so many girls excited to be out playing football. It was something that I didn't have growing up, but it's so good to be able to go to these schools with so many girls playing and see for myself how much girls' football is growing' (Lucy Bronze, MCWFC and England)
During Lucy's visit, eighty KS2 girls travelled to 'The Sports Domes' in Seaton to participate in a special Clavering Intra Middle School #WeCanPlay Competition and Clavering Intra Upper School #WeCanPlay Competition.
