On Friday 19th January, St. Mary’s was delighted to welcome Eboni Usoro-Brown for an inspirational assembly and Netball coaching session. Ms Usoro-Brown, a former Netballer for England, joined us in her capacity as an ambassador for the Mintridge Foundation, a charity championing wonderful role models in the world of sport for younger generations.
Pupils in Year 1-6 were thrilled to hear about her experiences as a top Netballer, and the importance of resilience, risk-taking and respect (which link perfectly to the pillars of learning we have at St. Mary’s) in training to be the best she can be. Later in the morning, St. Mary’s girls were able to put their skills to the test in a hugely enjoyable and invaluable coaching session. Thank you, Eboni, for sharing your wisdom and for visiting us!
