Here at Coal Clough Academy we believe in Girl Power. Four girls went to Valley Street Community Centre in Burnley to learn kickboxing which is a combination of fitness and boxing and is really quite exhausting. The lessons are held every Tuesday and last an hour. School Counsellor at Coal Clough Academy Edel McGinn said: “I really enjoyed it because it helps me get rid of all my stress and I also get fit at the same time. “I go because I can then encourage the girls to take part in physical exercise.” I went along to one of the sessions, I had heard of kickboxing before but I had never tried it. It was really good fun because I got to do something new and it got rid of a bit of my anger, I might even go back again.
