Some Yr11 students undertook a difficult orienteering residential in the lake district this weekend. During the trip they had to navigate over new terrain and compete to find control points in really difficult conditions. They all performed really well and were a credit to the school. (Just don’t mention the sheep!)
Two of our year 10 pupils boxed on the Jimmy Egan boxing club show in Wythenshawe Forum on Saturday 17th January, to celebrate the clubs 35th year anniversary. Sean McManus came out strong, throwing a variety of combinations keeping his opponent on the ropes. However, his opponent came back to take the lead in the last round. It was very close, but unfortunately Sean lost narrowly on points.
Anthony Strang and his opponent got off to a difficult start. Both boxers showed great determination and strength. Both were throwing straight shots that were connecting. But Anthony’s power was too much for his opponent, therefore Anthony won by TKO.
Well done Sean and Anthony. Keep up the hard work.
Boxing is a dynamic form of exercise that has many social, physical and mental well-being benefits. Many people have expressed that participating in boxing has helped with self confidence and self esteem. Others enjoy boxing because it is different and liberating and it has helped them to overcome situations such as being bullied or needing to combat stress.
