Sports Awareness Day SMCB
On Friday 15 December, the Year 14 Sports Science students ran an event in association with Sport NI to raise awareness of mental health and give the Year 8 boys master classes in different sports, including Maui Thai, Wheelchair Basketball, Rugby, Ju-Jitsu and Boxing. The boys secured sponsorship for the event and stars like Joe Gormely (local football star) attended the event. TAMHI ( mental health awareness charity) provided a workshop in the afternoon and the Chair of Sport NI, Antoinette McKeown closed the event with a speech linking positive mental health to involvement in sport. The event was a great success and the Year 14 students provided an inspirational experience for the Year 8 boys!
