Surf's Up For School

Two school Surf Clubs, from Outer Reef surf school, got together earlier this month to celebrate their success.
The 5x60 Surf Clubs at Greenhill and Pembroke met up at the Tenby school for a joint presentation evening.
Over the last two terms, 130 pupils from the two schools have taken part in a six week after-school junior surf programme run in conjunction with the Outer reef surf school.
Parents and pupils were treated to a short video of their new found skills before Jo Dennison - this year's British Womens'Surf Champion - presented certificates to all those who took part.
Special mention was made of Greenhill's Kirk Lester, who achieved level 4 of the junior surf scheme in just over two years. Next year the youngster plans to undertake a sponsored surf competition to raise money for the Welsh Air Ambulance Service and RNLI.
Organized by Sport Pembrokeshire - the sports development arm of Pembrokeshire County Council - the 5x60 project aims to encourage more secondary school children to take part in extra-curricular activities, while getting fit at the same time.
