On Tuesday 10 May, six students were invited to take part in the Nottingham University Elite Sports Experience Day along with four other GDST schools – Nottingham, Belvedere, Newcastle and Shrewsbury.
Pupils took part in a number of workshops; strength and conditioning, sports rehabilitation, goal setting and question and answer sessions with sports scholars. They finished off with a wheelchair basketball introductory session and game. One of the highlights was being able to use the Hydrotherapy pools – walking in a pool of 9 degrees then into one of 32 degrees. Ella D smashed the 10m sprint and strength test, power jump, gaining the best time and height.
A truly inspirational day, and we thank the team at Nottingham University for that fantastic opportunity.
