THE TUESDAY SHOW tonight will look at the reorganisation of youth sport in Tower Hamlets. Our special guest is Shuhel Malique: a PE teacher in Tower Hamlets for 18 years; a hockey superstar; and former PE Curriculum Manager for Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation.
THYSF had great success organising sport across Tower Hamlets – until it received attention from the Executive Mayor John Biggs. The Executive Mayor found fault with the organisation and cut its funding. What happened next?
●Are the schools still delivering high quality PE?
●Are girls getting a look-in?
●Can young people try out minority sports?
●What’s happening after school – in the community organisations around Tower Hamlets?
●What’s the cost of local facilities?
●Is the current set up delivering equal opportunities for all our youngsters?
●We’re half way through the school holidays: have our young people enjoyed an excellent service?
Tonight The Tuesday Show will discuss the legacy of that mayoral axe-blow. Join us on the Vodtalk Facebook page – live or on demand. If you are involved in sport in Tower Hamlets, or with local youth services, or if you work in a neighbouring Borough which does things differently, ring in and share your views.
