Our students were very excited by the visit of Matt Oldfield.
Matt is the author of the Ultimate Football Series and the Classic Football Series and visited the Academy to work with some Year 7, 8 and 9 students. He spoke about his wonderful books and how he was inspired to write them.
He also talked to the students about resilience and how to bounce back from the setbacks we face. It was great to see how engaged the students were as he helped them learn how to change their mindset when negative situations occur – whether in sport, at home or at school.
Students had the opportunity ask questions, buy books from both of his series and get them signed. Our brilliant student librarians also got to chat with Matt over their lunch!
