Mayflower girls embrace leadership training

Eight intrepid girls in Year 8 at Mayflower High School, Billericay, undertook leadership training prior to leading Quilters Junior School in inclusive and adapted sports.  They learnt sitting volleyball, polybat, goalball and new age kurling, so they could lead sessions with Year 4s during Quilters Paralympic Week.

Not only did they learn these games, new to them all, but how to teach younger pupils and how to coach them in developing their skills.  They covered teamwork – they worked in pairs – organisation, coaching, encouragement, communication and it built their confidence.

Thanks to Katie Lester who supervised them with enthusiasm!

Enjoy the fun and laughter in these photos – it shows that learning can be enjoyable.  If you would like your school to benefit from such learning please click here: Contact us
