WEGs HAVE THEIR CAKE & GET FITTER
The WEGs hosted a Bake Off Competition. The girls utilised their culinary skills to create outstanding desserts.
The WEGS took part in their first ever fitness and dance session with instructor Fahima Iqbal, a 1V Community Champion Award nominee. The group chose to try out the hip hop style dance technique and danced to ‘Wild Thoughts’ by Rihanna.
The girls were extremely energetic at the beginning of the lesson and became increasingly co-ordinated as the session progressed. WEGS member Azin even impressed her peers with some ad hoc cartwheels. The girls split into small groups to perform the routine and concluded that the most adept dancer in the group is Zainab!
