Yesterday afternoon Year 4 was lucky to participate in a Bronco’s NRL training and games session.
Not only did students get an insight into the physical skills necessary to play Rugby, but they also had the opportunity to gain an insight of what it means to adopt the mindset of a good rugby player. The main message of the session gave students time to think about being a good person and applying this to any aspiration they may have.
At the end of the Broncos session, in their classrooms, students took the opportunity to speak about skills necessary to be your ‘best’ as well as ‘being your best’ within a team– students responded with; we need resilience and persistence, we need to practise even when we fail. We can be a good leader by leading by example, making the most of every opportunity and not giving up when it gets hard. The best player may not be the most skilful at the game – the best player might be the person that can listen, adapt, motivate others and lead the team to success.
Thank you to 4L for sharing this wonderful news story and to Mr Fairbairn for organising this fantastic opportunity for our students.
Today our Year 5 students will participate in games and skills development and our Year 6 students will attend a leadership and goal setting presentation with past NRL players.
