Ellie, one of our Year 9 pupils requested some self defence training as an enrichment activity. This week, on the first sunny day in a long time, we were able to invite Chris from Sheffield Self-Defence to teach the Year 9 some of the basics of self-defence on the astro. It was great to see them working together and learning some useful techniques. Chris spoke to them about how assertive, calm communication can diffuse difficult situations and the importance of diet, sleep and positive thinking.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for listening
to my suggestion and making it happen. I think the
people you found were great and I learnt a great deal
from the lesson. I think loads of people had fun and
learnt a lot from today as well from what I have gauged by talking to my friends and other people in the year. Hopefully this is something the school may do again for other years too!” Ellie Spray.
