100% Attendance Rewarded with Olympic Park Cycling Experience

On Monday 13 November, 29 Year 9-11 students experienced an Olympic legacy as part of an attendance reward trip.

There are some great venues to experience in the Queen Elizabeth Park and the school regularly organises visits to engage our pupils. In 2012 the Olympic Games attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to the park and one of the most popular events to view was cycling.

Our students were able to access two sessions during the half day visit, with both the Olympic Velodrome and BMX track available. The boys were given some expert tuition from the onsite coaches, who took them through the different skills and techniques required to first of all not fall off, but then also master the speed and braking at different sections. The pupils put everything into the day and they really impressed with how well they listened to the instructions and how able they were to put them into practice. There were many stand out performances, with a real competitive edge growing among the group.

 

Several of the students commented on the visit being their 'best trip ever' and it really was a pleasure to reward some of our best attenders so far this academic year.

Assistant Principal and trip leader, Mr Reader, said: "Sport is such an important part of everything Hayesbrook but it is important that we use as many different sports as possible to engage our students. Cycling is such a popular sport in this country and we had so much interest in this trip that we will most certainly repeat the trip in the future".
