Due to an ongoing partnership with Sheffield International Venues we were this year able to provide a number of schools with the opportunity to visit IceSheffield and take part in a number of different activities that most pupils had not undertaken previously. Students from 7 Arches schools were grouped together and had the opportunity to take part in Ice Skating, Curling and the Altitude High Ropes. The pupils even had the opportunity to see some ice hockey players in practice as well as figure skaters doing some amazing tricks on the ice.
It was incredible to see the progress that all children made on the day of the event, with some of the group overcoming their fears throughout the day. The success of this event has led to more opportunities to be developed at the venue for next year.
