Grit & Resilience Assembly
Earlier this month the students were shown an interesting assembly on ‘Grit and Resilience’ presented by Mr Birkett, Head of PE Faculty. The assembly focused on the lessons learnt from these past 13 months, since the start of the pandemic and how we, as individuals, have had to show resilience in overcoming different adversities: some from not seeing friends and family, to not being able to go anywhere during lockdown. Mr Birkett talked about how he has learnt to overcome setbacks and spoke on what has ultimately made him stronger, from listening to podcasts and training for the marathon.
The assembly is especially relevant while our Year 11 and Year 13 students sit their final GCSE and A Level exams and prepare for their next steps after such an unprecedented year. We hope the assembly was able to show them ways of overcoming any setbacks during this study period.
