Year 13: Healthy Active Lifestyle

Last week, Year 13 students enjoyed an engaging session with an external Martial Arts coach as part of their Healthy Active Lifestyle lessons.

The session focused on Self-Defence. The instructor talked to the students about the importance of adopting a strategy of awareness and avoidance whilst enjoying life as young adults. They got the chance to experience and demonstrate different movements and actions that could help get them out of a difficult situation.

The instructor was really good at explaining what to do in different situations, but also provided some basic but important key points e.g: not wearing your lanyard outside school/university as it highlights you are a student and, if labelled, tells someone where you are studying and in some cases your name.

The students really enjoyed the session and whilst we hope they never have to use the skills learnt, will know what to do if needed.
