“It allowed me to apply my knowledge in my academics to real life, which was really nice and contributed to my 40 hour placement”.

Gerald Wong (2nd Year, Sport Coaching Science)

“We learnt new skills and good life skills by teaching other ages sports skills. We learnt how to teach young children which we did in the end event, at the start I felt nervous but once it was done I was happy and it wasn’t that hard. It was a really fun experience as I have always loved sports so it was really fun to share my passion with other people”
