Fossa School organised a very successful Skipathon on Friday October 24th. Qualified skipping instructor Mark McCabe taught a variety of skipping techniques to all classes which proved to be an overwhelming success. A number of children from all classes were chosen at the end of the day to perform the different skipping techniques in front of both parents and children. Children have subsequently embraced skipping enthusiastically since this visit. There is now a realisation that one of the oldest and most basic forms of exercise is tremendous fun and is one of the best ways to keep fit and healthy.
