Howick High School Principal Lauren Farquharson said the passion of the people involved in the Power Plate Legacy Project is unrivalled.

Drives us to push harder

“To see people with such drive and positive energy is inspiring.

“This drives us here at Howick high to push for positive results and we want our athletes to have that same passion and drive.”

Brendon Goodenough, who represents the Prime Trust, is hoping that by helping to uplift sport at Howick High School some of these pupils could feed into the elite athlete system.
