Outdoor Gym Opening Ceremony
The Ebbsfleet Academy were delighted to welcome Paralympic athlete, Tim Prendergast to the school this week for the grand opening of their new outdoor gym.
The outdoor gym was made possible by a generous donation from Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and is a fantastic addition to the facilities at the Academy.
Gurjit Kaur Shergill, Principal, said:
“The outdoor gym will bring huge benefits to both the physical and mental wellbeing of our students. It is lovely to see our students taking advantage of using the equipment during breaks as well as during their PE lessons.”
Paralympic Gold Medallist Tim Prendergast said:
“One thing the last twelve months has taught us all is the absolute importance of our own mental, physical and social wellbeing. The generosity of EDC coupled with the determination of the school has enabled this project to take place and the outdoor gym to become a crucial part of the fabric of the school.
For me, it was sport and physical activity that unlocked a spark in me that enabled me to fulfil many of my own personal aspirations, I really hope that facilities such as the new outdoor gym help to inspire, motivate and energise the students of Ebbsfleet Academy to become the very best versions of themselves.’
