Bristol Bears Rugby visit King Arthur’s School
On Monday 24th January Premiership team Bristol Bears visited King Arthur’s School as part of their outreach work and HITZ flagship education and employability programme.
Nick George and Ben Woolfson, used rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship throughout their session with key stage 3 students. The aim was to help students realise the importance of the ‘soft skills’ that occur in rugby and all things PE, when studying other subjects, training, apprenticeships and/or employment in the future.
Students played many games of conditioned rugby to help them realise the value of transferable skills they gain through the medium of sport, such as communication, resilience, teamwork, leadership, empathy, co-operation and respect to name a few.
KA students loved the sessions and in addition to the rugby’s core values developing the personal skills, life skills and employability skills, some students have since hinted they may even now look to join external rugby clubs!
Student Filip said “It was nice to meet the players/coaches and hear them sharing their knowledge about different careers and pathways to take.”
