Olympian inspires Ivanhoe Girls

Last week, Joanne Jackson - former Olympian, visited Ivanhoe College to aid with the launch of our Girls Active project.  Throughout the morning session the girls had the opportunity to learn about Joanne’s background in swimming and the barriers she faced on her journey, whilst also learning the Sky Sports for Living 6 keys to success; Mental toughness, Hunger to achieve, People skills, Sports and life knowledge, Breaking barriers and Planning for success. To finish the session, they had an opportunity to put these keys to success into action with some fun team building activities. 


For the afternoon session the Girl Active group split into their 3 separate teams where they worked alongside Joanne to develop new ways in which they could improve their 3 areas of focus; parental engagement, girls active clubs and promotion. The girls involved felt inspired after the visit and are keen to put their projects into action.
