Visit of Olympic Boxer Natasha Jones to Ellesmere Port Catholic High School

Posted on

Natasha Jones, Olympic boxer visited Ellesmere Port Catholic High School to meet with students who are taking part in the Sky Sports Living for Sport Healthy Humans Project.  The project is helping to raise awareness of how to lead healthy lifestyles and Natasha said that she was delighted to have the opportunity to visit the school in support of the project and to see the excellent work that is being carried out by staff in supporting students to take a lead in developing their own understanding of the importance of regular exercise and eating healthy.

The students were motivated and enthused by Natasha’s visit and Mark Howard from Year Eight said Natasha was an inspiration.

Mr Cavanagh, Head of Boys’ PE said it’s awesome to see pupils taking responsibility for their own health and personal fitness. Natasha’s visit has really helped increase the motivation levels of the pupils. The session she delivered was engaging and full of energy. This has now set the platform for the pupils taking part to inspire other pupils from across the school to lead healthy lifestyles. I am really proud of the pupils and a big thanks to Mr Lloyd for running the Tuesday Healthy Humans Fitness Club.
