Hasland Super Stars – Summer Term 2015
30 of our students from Year 7 to 11 who have shown excellent sporting potential have been involved in a ‘Living for Sport’ initiative, aimed at developing leadership, communication and teamwork skills. They have taken part in 20 weekly sessions after-school sampling a variety of different sports from mainstream activities such as badminton and trampolining to alternatives such as Handball, Ultimate Frisbee and even Muggle Quidditch!
As all the students possess strong practical abilities, they were able to test their skills against each other in various competitive challenges. They were also given the opportunity to help inspire and educate peers who are less confident in PE.
During the project, students had two visits from England Basketball Player, Andrew Bridge who spent time with the group sharing his story and ideas which have motivated him. He also spent time inspiring other groups around school, leading assemblies and setting up physical and mental challenges.
“It was a fantastic way to develop the life skills of young people whilst doing something they loved. From week to week, you could really see an improvement in the way they interacted socially. Not only within the sessions but also around school in other situations and with other groups of people.” Mr Lye (Project Leader).
The pupils’ achievements will be celebrated soon at our Sports Awards Evening, on the 14th July.
