The Boswells School welcomes London 2012 volleyball Olympian for Sky Sports Living for Sport project

The Boswells School welcomed London 2012 volleyball Olympian Rachel Laybourne for the latest instalment in the successful Sky Sports Living for Sport project day.

Twenty Year 7 students were selected for the day based on one or a variety of reasons including being committed to extra-curricular clubs, working hard in lessons, having a good attitude towards sport and PE or simply by helping out the department throughout the year.

Students completed fun, team-based activities around Sky Sports Six Keys for Success that get them to consider their own sporting profiles in terms of future careers and what they would be required to do to get to the top.

The students also heard Rachel's inspirational story which highlighted her journey to the London 2012 Olympics.

PE teacher Callum Ridgway said: "We’ve been lucky in that in the years we’ve run the project we’ve had some really good mentors come to the school to work with the students. They have included Mike Mullen, Jeanette Kwakye and JJ Jegede.

"Rachel was no different. She delivered a really inspiring account of her journey that had the students asking lots of interesting questions before she got them involved in lots of fun activities as they worked through Sky’s six keys.

"The students really appreciate the day and can look back and say they got to meet a London 2012 Olympian when at school."

The project will continue into the next academic year.
