Plymouth Raiders pose with saltash.net students

On Thursday 8th March, saltash.net was delighted to welcome in to school members of the Plymouth Raiders squad, as part of their Healthy Hearts Roadshow, which is funded by Heart Research UK and Subway.

The squad delivered a presentation on healthy living, running through each food group and its benefits, for students from Year 8, 9 and The Zone.

They were also happy to answer a number of questions from the eager students, who interrogated them on topics ranging from basketball tactics to how the players use their spare time.

After lunch, the Raiders squad led the students in basketball training sessions, teaching them the basics of the sport and showing off their skills.

A massive thanks to Plymouth Raiders for coming in and providing this great opportunity for our students.

saltash.net PE teacher Mr. Budd, who organised the visit, was delighted with the day.

“A huge thank you goes to Plymouth Raiders for visiting saltash.net. We feel very privileged to have been chosen for a visit and the students have had a memorable and enjoyable afternoon.  We are grateful to the players for giving up their time and we would love to welcome them back to saltash.net in the future”, he said.
