Sport Cardiff True 2 Me Partnership

March 29, 2018

Llanishen High School have been the first secondary school in Cardif to receive the Girls Together True2Me course. The course provides a number of wellbeing workshops utilising resources from the Dove skincare True2Me self esteem campaign to tackle the appearance ideal and increase the confidence of young girls. Girls Together work with groups of  up to 15 girls between the age of 13-15 years to identify the barriers which affect their participation in sports and physical activity and provide opportunities to increase their levels of physical activities.

 

Our partnership with Sport Cardiff has enabled the groups to access physical activity sessions in an environment away from school, which has increased the girls confidence as they do not feel judged by their peers. The pilot has been a success and will be offered to other Cardiff secondary schools after the Easter break.

  

Gemau Cymru Success

July 18, 2017

Incredible day at the Gemau Cymru games.  6 members represented the club in the weightlifting competition.

It takes courage to walk out onto the lifting platform on your own and these girls and boys were outstanding in their attitude, effort and comradely.

Special mention to Lucy who was awarded the Best Technical Lifter in her group, narrowly missing first place for total weight lifted and to Calum for placing 3rd in his group for total weight lifted.

We are an affiliated club with fully qualified coaches and our Head Coach is a British Weightlifting Licensed Coach. Our weightlifting club runs every Thursday 7:00-8:00p.m.

New Yoga class launched

January 11, 2016

We have partnered with “I’m a Yogi – Yoga” to offer yoga courses. We will be running two taster classes on Wednesday February 3rd & 10th 6:00pm – 7:00pm priced at 5.00 per class. 5 week course commences Wednesday February 24th.

The class will be delivered by Sinead O’Neill, a qualified children and teen yoga teacher, teaching within Cardiff and the Vale. With a degree in Psychology and four years of experience working with children and young people (2-18 years), Sinead has enjoyed delivering groups and one-to-one work with children and young people, focusing on increasing their wellbeing through promoting healthy nutrition, exercise and relaxation. Settings include schools, nurseries, hospitals, and communities. Sinead has worked for, or in partnership with, leading charities Action for Children, Barnardos and Mind.

Sinead’s classes aim to support children’s development of strength, flexibility, confidence and concentration. Sinead also uses mindfulness and relaxation techniques to support children’s emotional wellbeing. It is hoped that children are able to use yoga as a tool to improve their physical and mental health. Classes are fun and engaging, with an appropriate amount of challenge so that each child feels like they are progressing with their practice, no matter where they start from.
