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.
