Last week our Year 10 CYGNET class had Brooke Neal, a former NZ Black Sticks hockey player, in to speak to us. As a young athlete, it was really inspiring to see the accomplishments she has achieved and hear the stories she had to share.
We learnt some very valuable lessons and took a lot away from the talk, including breathing exercises we can use if we are ever stressed. We also learnt about resilience and how important it is to incorporate it into our lives – along with some really useful tips to help have a clear mindset.
