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.
A new Community Choir, meeting every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at the school, is soon to be launched. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
The first gathering will take place on Tuesday 28 November in the Music block. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the school on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Carol Concert will take place on Monday 18 December at Hasland Methodist Church, commencing at 7.00pm. Tickets are available from the school.
