Living for Sport Programme – Summer Term 2016
On Thursday 16 June, Hasland Hall Community School was fortunate enough to host a visit from former international tennis player, Anna Fitzpatrick, as part of the Living for Sport Programme.
During the first session, Anna worked with a group of Year 7 and Year 8 students. She introduced the students to 6 keys to success; mental toughness, hunger to achieve, people skills, sports and life knowledge, breaking barriers and planning for success, and she explained how these relate to success in sport and in life beyond sport.
The group investigated these keys to success through a mixture of theory and practical activities.
The second session involved the Year 8 and Year 9 Super Stars group. In this session, the group investigated ways that they could use spare time to complete constructive activities which would enable them to achieve their goals. They also examined the team of people around them who will help them to be successful. They went on to develop a leadership theme and planned short sessions which they would deliver in the final session of the day.
“It was good,” said Ellie and “Really enjoyable,” added Elizabeth. “We’ve worked with other athletes through the programme,” said Eloise, “but, as a tennis pro, Anna put a different spin on it.”
The day culminated in an active session in which the group rotated around 8 different activity stations, all led by the members of the Super Stars group.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
We would like to invite parents of all Year 9 students to come into school on Wednesday 23 January at 7pm to attend the GCSE Guided Choices Evening. The evening provides an opportunity for you to find out more about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the subjects that are part of it. Subject teachers and the Careers Advisers will be attending to answer your questions and offer advice. We look forward to seeing you.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Bev Kershaw on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
