Big and Little Sisters at Blessed Edward Jones Catholic High School, Rhyl, North Wales had a fab group event hosted by Sasha Kenney at Hoola Nation this month.
Did you know there are over 474 things you can do with a Hoola Hoop? Well our girls had great fun finding out and it was amazing to watch their confidence grow as they participated in this fun physical activity. Judging by the pictures some of our Big Sisters had a ball too!
No sooner had this event finished all we could hear was the chant ‘Can we do it again Miss can we, can we’.
