5 x 60 Club at Llanidloes High School

WHAT IS 5x60?
The 5x60 Project is a Sport Wales initiative and was launched in Llanidloes High School in September 2007 in response to challenges set by the Welsh Assembly Government. Its aim is to increase the number of secondary pupils taking part in extra curricular sport.

The role of the 5 x 60 officer is to consult with the pupils, listen to their needs and identify the barriers which prevent them from participating in physical activity.  Following this, they timetable a programme of extra-curricular activities that suit the pupils’ needs.  These activities target the individuals who do not currently participate in any physical activity, or who are in danger of losing interest, and will compromise of traditional activities such as football and hockey, to recreational activities such as dance, aerobics and outdoor activities such as orienteering, kayaking and mountain biking.

Information about the 5x60 timetable can be found in the windows of the school gym and on the television screens dotted around school – this changes each term. An up-to-date timetable can also be found on the school website. If you have any suggestions for activities that you would like to see, please let Kate know.

The 5x60 project is heavily reliant on volunteers – roles include taking registers, organising festivals or tournaments, refereeing matches and leading sessions. Incentives are offered to those who contribute a number of hours to the project; from t-shirts and hoodies to extra training and qualifications, the possibilities are endless! For more information, please contact Kate Jones at school.

Powys Route for 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay

The Queen’s Baton Relay will visit Powys this September during its 388-day journey through the Commonwealth. 

The Powys route is part of the 230,000 kilometer journey to the baton’s final destination - The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia in April 2018.

The baton will spend four days in Wales, making its way through Powys on September 7 as part of a journey through every nation and territory within the commonwealth in the build up to the opening ceremony. 

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communications Cllr Wynne Jones, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Queen’s Baton Relay to Powys once again. 

“As the baton travels through the county, it’s an opportunity to celebrate our rich heritage, culture, beautiful landscapes and the Welsh language on an international stage. 

“The Powys route will begin in Brecon, travel up to Rhayader for a public street event before stopping at Llanidloes high and primary schools and a private photo stop in Llandinam.

“It will then travel to the new Welsh-medium Ysgol Dafydd Llwyd in Newtown, before a final stop in the county at Welshpool.

“I hope having the Queen’s Baton in Powys will ignite pride in our county and Welsh athletes competing in the games. Plans are at an early stage but we look forward to putting on memorable activities to mark this exciting occasion.”

Chris Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Wales Chief Executive, said: “We’re extremely proud to announce this route. The Relay will give everyone a chance to be involved in an unforgettable experience.”
