Benenden's Sports Scholars received a talk from Clarissa Murphy of the Rugby Football Union recently.
The talk covered ideas around being a role model, challenging behaviours, and the strategies that can be employed to do so. Clarissa recently delivered the same content to the England men’s rugby team at their Autumn nations camp in Jersey.
The workshop delved into model behaviour, and challenging inappropriate behaviours even though it may be uncomfortable.
At Benenden, Sports Scholars are encouraged to act as role models within the school – particularly in Sport; and this workshop gave them a toolbox to help practice their model behaviours and challenge their peers to do the same.
