Icknield welcomes Paralympic Footballer

On Friday 25th November, Icknield welcomed GB Paralympic Footballer Alistair Patrick- Heselton to the school as part of ‘Sky Sports’ Living for Sport project.

The sporting star delivered an inspirational talk to a group of students about his career and the personal challenges he has faced over the years following a serious accident. The students listened attentively to Alistair as he explained how perseverance and self-belief enabled him to play in the Paralympic World Championships as well as scoring buyclomidovulation.com against Argentina in the 2012 London Paralympics.

Throughout the morning, the group learnt about the importance of the ‘Six keys to Success’ which include; Mental Toughness, Hunger to Achieve, People Skills, Breaking Barriers and Planning for Success, as well as taking part in teambuilding activities.

The workshop was a fantastic opportunity for our students to develop valuable life skills that can help aid their confidence and success both in and outside of school, now and into the future.
