Sky Sports For Living sent Hannah Beharry, a Great Britain boxer, to Richmond Park Academy for the day on Tuesday 14 May to work with a group of 20 Year 9 and 10 girls.
They completed a series of team building tasks focused on co-operation, mental toughness and how to set and achieve your goals. The girls were inspired by Hannah’s personal story of overcoming adversity and her drive to succeed.
"I would like to thank Richmond Park Academy for inviting me down as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport Project. The atmosphere in the school was tremendous and really welcomed the Sky Sports Living for Sport scheme with both hands. The head was amazing in introducing me and personally welcoming me. The young ladies I got to work with were very talented and smart individuals. I would like to wish every one of them the success they deserve and would like to thank the PE staff for supporting the project. I look forward in working with you again in the near future."
