Bede’s Welcomes Sporting Edge for Informative Talk
On Thursday 27 September, Senior and Prep (Year 7 and 8) pupils and parents gathered in the Recital Room at Bede’s Senior School in Upper Dicker for a talk by Michael Caulfield MSc, Director and Sport Psychologist at Sporting Edge.
Using practical tools from performance psychology with inspiring video stories from proven high performers, Mr Caulfield’s talk focused on the importance of setting goals. Attendees learnt valuable techniques in how to reach goals, managing challenges and setbacks, and using experiences to build resilience and improve performance. Mr Caulfield also hosted an interactive session on the mind-set required to cope with the challenges many face in a busy, fast-paced world.
David Byrne, Director of Sport at Bede’s, said, “It was fantastic to welcome Mr Caulfield to Bede’s for this fascinating talk and interactive session, which I know our pupils will remember as they look ahead to achieving their own goals in sport and academically. Many thanks to Mr Caulfield and the Sporting Edge team for their time and invaluable insight; we have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.”
