YR10 Young Ambassador Conference - Friday 6th November 2020

On Friday 6th November 2020, we selected ten of our Year 10 students to participate in the Young Ambassador Conference that is arranged through the Slough School Sports Network. This year was a new experience for ourselves and the students as it took place virtually through Zoom with other schools across the borough.

The morning was a great success with speakers from 2-3 degrees, Aik Saath, Slough School Sports Network and Fadumo Olow running various activities for the students to take part in. The purpose of the day was to develop leadership skills, confidence and key skills but with a focus this year on students who attended to go back into school and engage peers and younger year groups to become physically active and able to promote how being physically active can help you physically, mentally and academically too.

Throughout the morning the students took part in workshops looking at sports coaching, positive communication and looking at future aspirations. There was a lot of discussion between the schools which was a positive and successful experience for our students considering the restrictions the country is currently under.

Leadership in sport is an excellent way for students to build confidence, develop their teamwork skills, organisation and several other competencies that are essential in life so having the opportunity to be part of the day will have been beneficial for the Wexham students. We hope they will take away any skills that they have learnt throughout the day to help raise participation within Physical Activity as well as developing their own leadership skills.
