Danson Dazzles Pupils

The pupils of Rose Hill School were joined by Alex Danson MBE, GB Women’s Hockey gold medallist at Rio 2016 this week.
Alex got the ball rolling with an assembly to the whole school which was truly inspirational. Following Olympic footage of Danson and the England team, the children sat spellbound as she shared with them the hurdles she had to overcome to achieve England selection and Olympic success and the importance of having a goal in life, persevering and never giving up.
Fascinating stories about the Olympic village were told, the emotions experienced on the pitch during the Olympic final, the gruelling and disciplined training/preparation and the importance and value of team work. Of course it was also the Gold medal that everyone was waiting to see.
Alex then took the pupils for a series of training sessions on the astro focusing on the basic skills with yr3-6, and more advanced shooting techniques with years 7& 8 (goal keeper Horatio Thomson bravely stepping up to defend the goal against the formidable Danson strike). Group photos, stick signing and lots of medal touching and holding (the weight of which is quite extraordinary) concluded each session. This was truly memorable experience which we hope the pupils will treasure for a long time. Huge thanks to Alex for such an unforgettable visit.
This was an amazing opportunity for the pupils. To have an athlete of Alex’s stature spend the morning with us was truly a privilege. Alex was wonderful and stressed the importance of how, effort and resilience can overcome talent and ability. We thank Alex so much for such a memorable morning.
