Farringtons School, celebrated the opening of its new Fitness Suite this month after a considerable refurbishment programme.
After initial celebrations, marked by drinks and canapés enjoyed by staff, pupils and members of the Farringtons Parents’ Association (FPA), Mr Doyle (Director of Sport) gave a few words of thanks to the FPA. The FPA has funded the refurbishment, which now provides the school with an impressive facility where our students can exercise to improve their cardiovascular fitness, endurance and strength.
Mrs James (Headmistress) and Mr Gately (Chair of the FPA) cut the ribbon to cheers from spectators and students began to use the equipment straight away. It is primarily for use by our BTEC and Sixth Form students and we hope that they will be able to get much satisfaction and benefit from the Suite, even if not all the exercises are particularly enjoyable!
