Headteacher’s values award winner: Lili Soley
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Lili Soley, Year 7. Lili was nominated by Miss Abbey, who wrote: “Throughout our unit of work based on endurance goals which helps students to build their stamina levels to be able to run for a longer amount of time, Lili has worked exceptionally hard. In today’s lesson, we repeated our experiment to see if the students could run for a longer amount of time before needing a walk break. Lili’s aim was to beat her target of 7 minutes 20 seconds of consecutive running, covering a distance of around 1.6km. Lili has been practising her running at home and after school clubs. She absolutely smashed her target by running for 20 minutes, covering a distance of 3.3km.
Not only did Lili show incredible independence and resilience to keep her own pace going the whole time, she also found opportunities to jog with other members of the group to encourage them to keep going. She could be heard giving them praise about how much they had achieved already and that they could keep going a little bit longer. She is an exceptional young student who has impressed the PE staff already.”
