A SCHOOL has been honoured for its exemplary after-school health club.
Sherburn Hill Primary School’s Energy Club was one of a handful across the country to be judged as outstanding by the national organisation Sports Leaders UK.
Yesterday (Thursday, February 6), Emily Burns, North-East Energy Club co-ordinator, visited the school to present an award.
Parents, governors and Councillor Pauline Charlton, the Mayor of Durham, also attended for a special assembly.
Children involved in the weekly after-school club, which started in September, take part in physical activities and learn about healthy lifestyles.
PE co-ordinator Rachael Barnett said she was very pleased to receive the award.
