Sky Sports Gifted & Talented Day

Posted on: 17th November 2016

On Wednesday we hosted the 3rd North Walsham High School Sky Academy day. It was a great success for our Gifted and Talented pupils in Years 8 and 9 with the Year 8s learning about the importance on teamwork, and our Year 9s learning about nutrition, psychology and careers in Sport.

Our Year 10 BTEC pupils learnt about leadership from our Sky Mentor Paralymian, World Champion and World Record holder Fran Williamson. She retold the story of her success within swimming and how she broke down the many barriers of disability and injury to reach her dreams. A key phrase that came out of the day was “I would rather have a life full of ‘oh wells’ than ‘what ifs”. A quote from one of our students was “She is an inspirational person who has taught us all a lot about succeeding in our goals”.
