Over the last few weeks, Teikyo University students have enjoyed playing a variety of different sports. On the Collingwood pitch, 6-a-side football has continued with matches against two different local teams. The skill and pace of the Teikyo students has been a good match for the more experienced and more physical local teams producing two evenly contested matches. We have one more game before the end of this term.

The students were welcomed on arrival and given a short tour of the stables, learning the names of the horses and being equipped with riding helmets. During the lessons, students learnt to walk and trot and many said they’d love to go again!

This month, students have also been to Top Gear go-karting. Again, it was the first time many of them had been. Despite a slow and cautious start, the students were soon speeding through their laps! Finally, six of our students have signed up for the Durham City 5K/10K Run taking place later this month. Please wish best of luck to the students as they attempt to beat the four staff members who are also taking part!
