Boxing fitness classes have begun at Trinity.

Ōtepoti Boxing Club is helping us with our project from a Tu Manawa grant.

Using student voice last year regarding their participation in physical activity of some type, students were interested in trying boxing or martial arts. With this information, we applied to Sport Otago for a grant to trial some classes.

During Term 1, and hopefully beyond, we are offering free classes with Chase down at the Boxing club on Crawford St and the numbers were strong for our first session yesterday. Anyone is welcome from years 9 - 13 and it runs from 3:30pm - 4:30pm on a Wednesday. Students need to make their own way down the hill.

We are grateful to teachers Julie Caparn and Laura Cooney who have offered to be available, and possibly don some gloves themselves. Gloves are provided but students are welcome to get their own wraps.
