Jantastic keeps King’s Active

The King’s sports department launched Jantastic back at the start of January. The Challenge proved popular and was uptaken by Kings Pupils from all year groups of the Kings Foundation, Parents, OVs & Staff.

Jantastic came to an end this week after a months’ worth of activity aimed at the senior school pupils and their families. The aim of the challenge was simply to get active for 30 minutes each day. During a difficult time for all members of the King’s family, we thought that sport and physical activity could play a massive role in getting people to feel more positive. The challenge was designed to help people become healthier in body and mind.

The second part of the challenge was to get pupils to try new things. While many pupils access the major sports at school, we are fully aware that it takes some pupils a little longer to find the thing they are passionate about. Pupils and families were guided towards a range of activities from yoga to boxercise, running to Pilates.

Assistant Director of Sport, Mr Ford said “The level of involvement was really pleasing, and it was great to see whole families getting involved. We hope that Jantastic enabled pupils to get into good healthy habits at the start of a new year and the flexibility of the challenge got them away from their screens.”

A full range of activities were undertaken including cycling, live circuit sessions, indoor rowing, cooking challenges, horse riding, mindfulness colouring and lots of dog walks!

Sport at King’s is about far more than what usually grabs the headlines and there will never be a bigger win than pupils and families becoming healthier through sport.

With this in mind, keep your eyes peeled on the King’s Sports Twitter for the next exciting challenge coming soon from the King’s Sport Department 🌎.
