About the Programme: The Gymnastics enrichment program will focus on teaching the young students about balance, fitness, flexibility and body awareness. The programme will also focus on helping students build confidence and resilience as they accomplish all the seemingly difficult tasks, with the help of their bodies. The strength, flexibility and balance that the students will gain from working on gymnastics skills will transfer easily to every other sport that you might want them to pursue. Some of the exercises and skills that this programme will focus on will be – animal travels, rolls and cartwheels.
