Hillgrove PR Supports Kelly Holmes’ Efforts to Improve School Sports in the UK

Double gold winner and the adviser on school sports, Kelly Holmes has commented on Twitter to support PE in schools, opposing the present government stance. If we need to sustain the current glory in Olympics, we’ll have to listen to experienced hands like Madame Kelly Holmes.

We at Hillgrove PR feel that the current status of sports in the UK schools is not healthy. The problem began when the education secretary Michael Gove in 2010 slashed funding for school sports partnerships and also watered the regulations regarding compulsory hours for PE and the annual survey for sport participation. The school sports partnerships were meant to boost the quality and variety of sport available to students.

Hillgrove PR has learnt that the government has cut a significant amount from the school sports budget and it’s going to negatively impact the standard of sports activities.
The Team GB has maintained 3rd position in the medal tally at London Olympics with 25 Gold medals after 12 days of the game. It’s a great achievement while comparing its 19 Gold haul in the last Olympics held at Beijing. In order to keep up this standard and for us to hold our heads high in the next Olympics, Hillgrove PR and the whole nation expect concrete steps from the part of the government.

Hillgrove PR invites all sports loving people to comment on this issue in order to attract the attention of our political leaders and the concerned authorities to help amicably solve this issue.
