Conquering our Fears

Today when Ecton Brook Campus went swimming all of the children swam from the deep end. Some may have been using floats, but everyone got the chance to experience what it is like to swim from one end of the pool to the other.

All the adults were so proud of you children today. The instructors at Lings said you were all amazing and they were so pleased that everyone had a go – even though some of you were unsure!

Remember what was said in Assembly last week about facing up to your fears. You certainly did that today and should be proud of yourselves. Never hold back and not try something because you are afraid – in the right environment it is OK to take chances and push yourselves.

Well done šŸ˜€šŸ˜€šŸ˜€
