London Youth Rowing - Active Row Launch

20th October 2017

On 16 October 2017 Stormont House students were invited to be part of the official launch for London Youth Rowing’s new programme - ‘Active Row’ at Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre. The programme is supported by Sport England and Tideway it will be running for the next 4 years, 2017-2021. The aim of the project is to get 8,000 more young people active across the capital. The event was attended by Triple Olympic Champion Andrew Triggs Hodge and Jessica Eddie, Olympic Silver medallist.

 

Stormont House students took part in activities both on the water and on indoor rowing machines. Our students were taught how to row on water, all of them achieved this feat in just one session! It was a fantastic experience and a privilege to be invited. All of the students thoroughly enjoyed attending the event.
