Mrs Sarah Wild Weekly Update 18th September

In this day and age, young people tend to spend a considerable amount of time playing on their computer. This undoubtedly has an impact on their health.

Participation in school sports supports the healthy growth of the heart, lungs, muscles and bones. It also improves agility, coordination and balance. The risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis and other chronic diseases is lower among physically active people, which makes it all the more important for children to appreciate the importance of physical activity at a young age.

At BVIS, we continuously encourage students to get involved! The role of sport in helping students achieve academically has also been shown through research time and time again. Throughout my time in education, I have seen how children who do sport achieve well in school and often better. For example, it helps them with discipline, to be focused and organised in their studies. It helps them cope with the stresses of life and to be happier, as they are socialising with their peers. I am also very much in favour of team sports, as students learn to respect each other, to be tolerant and to encourage each other’s achievement. It certainly helps teenagers gain confidence and have self-belief at a crucial stage of their life, when they are developing into young adults. Universities abroad will not just look at your child’s academic achievement. They will want well-rounded people, who are actively involved in school life. They will value applicants who have been members of school teams. At BVIS, sports take place from Monday to Thursday right until 5pm every day. There is a really positive atmosphere.

Meet our new members of staff who have been interviewed by Year 9 students and make sure you read their newsletter this week. I would encourage you as parents also to make sure your child is getting involved!
We are delighted to welcome Mr Tuyen, our new PE TA, who will be supporting lessons and coaching students after school.

Next week, we look forward to the Key Stage 3 basketball tournament at BIS!
