BPSS Challenge!

BPSS will today be launching weekly #StayInWorkOut personal challenges. We have tried to make it as simple as possible using limited equipment so it’s accessible for all students, school staff, parents and carers.

Each week we will upload a challenge via our social media channels. The concept is students/teachers/parents can practice the challenge as many times as they like before either uploading a video of themselves doing the challenge or tweeting their results. The aim is for individuals to achieve their personal best score, but can they also beat the BPSS team members score?!

We’d like all our Barnet schools and students to get involved with this, so please can you share via your schools social media channels.
