Youth Sport Trust Mentor Programme
Rosedale College were extremely lucky to have had a visit from Rachael Mackenzie, who is a part of the Youth Sport Trust Mentor Programme, on Thursday 9th December. Rachael has been the World Thai Boxing Champion and represented England in the Boxing Championships - an absolute true legend of her field. Rachael ran a great session for four groups of students who have been excellent within their Physical Education (PE) lessons, and represented the College at some point. The programme shows students how to succeed and achieve the best in life. Rachael shared her story on how she had to overcome barriers for her to reach the elite level within her sport. The skills and story Rachael shared were something that can be applied to all aspects of life, not just in sport, so it was great to see the students grasp that concept. The students watched and listened in amazement, taking away so much inspiration from this session, and it was a great insight into the mind of an elite sportsperson.
