“If you put the work in you can achieve anything!” M Robinson.
I first got into sport through my Dad at the age of three. Watching my Dad play football all of the time made me want to do just the same. At the start of secondary school I played a variety sports however, as I went up through the years I realised that football was the sport I wanted to pursue.
The positive environment, the social side and the friends that I have made for life make me passionate to play. I love the feeling of being part of a team and of being able to work so closely alongside my friends to achieve something.
My Dad and my Grandad are my inspiration as they brought me up to really enjoy sport and taught me how to be a good sportsman and player. They certainly passed on their love of sport to me!
Students in years 8 and 9 at The Abbey School, Faversham are gearing up for their BBC School News Report day on the 15th March 2018.
Throughout the day, the students will be transforming from ‘normal’ school students to fully fledged BBC School Reporters, which means that they have an ‘access all areas pass’ to help them cover the variety of stories that they have been carefully researching. The stories include key issues that the students feel passionate about, like the pressures of social media on young people and the positives to being involved in sport.
All of this hard work is being supported by English teachers Miss Bishop and Miss Le-Brunn, who are using their English, Media and Drama expertise to teach interviewing and research skills.
We look forward to BBC News Report day!
