Phil Thompson visit

08 December 2015

Yesterday afternoon, Monday, 7th December 2015, we welcomed former Liverpool FC and English Captain and current Sky Sports pundit Mr Phil Thompson to St Cuthbert’s to award commendations to students for participation or achievement in school sport at St Cuthbert’s.

The captains for Y7-11 of the following sports were awarded their captains badges: Football, Netball, Rugby, Hockey, Basketball, Athletics and Cheerleading.

 

The Year 11 Sports Captains were then introduced and re-awarded their badges.

 

Final presentation were the 'Commitment to Sport' Awards, for outstanding commitment and achievement in multiple sports. These went to one female and one male from each year group.

 

The presentations were followed with a short talk from Mr Thompson explaining the importance of commitment, leadership and the qualities involved, inspiring the students in how to be the best at what they do.  The students also had an opportunity to ask some thought provoking questions at the end which will undoubtedly continue to inspire them to be the best they can be.
