As part of the 70th anniversary celebrations and Bristol’s European City of Sport year, Brigitte Christensen, a Sports teacher from Bordeaux is undertaking a two week placement with Ashton Park Secondary. The school does a fantastic job running the South Bristol School Sports Partnership for more than 36 local schools and the team there are looking forward to welcoming Brigitte into their ranks. She will begin by working on the Stages Dance weekend at the Colston Hall. Brigitte specialises in Gymnastics but she is also part of a city wide Olympic commission in Bordeaux looking at girls and young women’s participation in Sport. Thanks to Ashton Park’s head of PE Debbie Winstanley for agreeing to host Brigitte and we look forward to an interesting exchange of experience and best practice.
