Why do we hold a duck race to raise money for Storrington Primary School?

We hold the Duck Race to raise money for the Storrington Primary School pool upkeep and maintenance as well as additional resources for the wider curriculum.

Sports play an essential role in shaping young people’s lives, and they can have a positive impact on both physical and mental health. Participating in sports activities at school can help students develop teamwork skills, self-confidence, and leadership qualities.

Firstly, participating in sports activities can help students develop their physical fitness and overall health. Regular exercise is crucial for maintaining a healthy body weight and reducing the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Sports can also promote healthy habits such as proper nutrition and hydration, which can have lifelong benefits for students’ health.

Secondly, sports can help students develop valuable social skills. Playing sports requires teamwork and cooperation, which can help students develop their communication and interpersonal skills. Students who participate in sports activities can also learn how to work through conflicts and solve problems effectively, which can translate into other areas of their lives.

Thirdly, sports can improve students’ mental health and well-being. Physical exercise releases endorphins, which are known to improve mood and reduce stress and anxiety. Participating in sports activities can also help students develop self-confidence and a positive self-image, which can have a significant impact on their mental health.

Finally, sports can help students develop leadership qualities. Students who participate in sports activities often take on leadership roles, such as team captain or coach. These roles can help students develop leadership skills such as communication, decision-making, and problem-solving, which can be valuable in both personal and professional settings.

That is why Storrington Primary School believes that sports play a vital role in school education and can have a positive impact on students’ physical, social, and mental health. By providing opportunities for students to participate in sports activities, our school can help them develop valuable skills and qualities that can benefit them throughout their lives. So, it is crucial that we support the Storrington Duck Race to enable our school to prioritise sports activities as part of their educational programs to provide students with a holistic learning experience.
