This week ex-rugby player and athlete mentor for Sky Sports, Paul Broadbent, paid a visit to our Year 10 and 11 PE students to lead assemblies on self-belief, confidence and motivation leading up to exams.
Several workshops were also held for a small group of Year 10 and 11 students on team building and leadership followed up by a selection of fitness sessions.
Our Year 11s were also given Sky Sports: Living For Sport t-shirts to wear for the duration of the day whilst taking part in practical activities.
Overall, the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all and was successful in motivating and inspiring our students.
A huge thank you to Paul Broadbent for spending the day with us!
Mr Fernandez and his kitchen brigade have spent their dinner time cooking up a storm for our staff with homemade Spanish cuisine in the Resource for ASD to raise money for a culinary treat.
As part of the ASD’s Junior Chef programme run by Chef Fernandez, students have launched the take away service for members of staff serving homemade international dishes at lunch time. All money raised from the dishes will be used to take the students to a “fast food” restaurant of their choice to teach invaluable lifestyle and communication skills and above all to learn that there are always healthy alternatives on the menu.
Mr Fernandez said that all students have loved learning new culinary skills and would like to thank staff for all their kind contributions.
