SHLA Leaders receive national recognition

posted 25 Apr 2018, 05:08 by John Newman   [ updated 25 Apr 2018, 05:11 ]

Three SHLA students were recently invited to the National Boccia championships at The University of Hertfordshire. Boccia is a Paralympic sport for athletes with disabilities that have a major impact on their motor skills. Boccia is a target ball sport similar in rules to bowls. Players play from a sitting position and will play i ndependently despite their disability. This invite was as a result of a successful link with Panathlon, a national charity which Panathlon is open to young disabled people between 5 and 19 and is predominately aimed at those young people with severe learning difficulties and/or physical impairments. 

The students have been highly praised for their leadership qualities both at Panathlon events and the Boccia championships held at SHLA. As a result of the success of these events and the leadership qualities shown by the students Boccia England invited 3 students, Callum Savill, Cody Aldridge and Alexis Coveney to officiate at the prestigious national championships. The students were rewarded for their efforts by spending two days as guests of Boccia England. During their stay they gained a level 1 in Boccia and officiated in the national championships. Our students were also chosen to officiate the final a great recognition of their efforts.

At the end of the event Callum Savill was voted “Young Official of the Year 2018” by the Boccia England Officials a fantastic achievement.

SHLA are very proud of our Young Leaders and their ongoing success, this recognition and award is justification of what our students can achieve.

Sir Herbert Leon Students Get Involved in a Driverless Future

posted 30 Jun 2017, 06:20 by Dan Butler   [ updated 30 Jun 2017, 06:28 ]

Sir Herbert Leon students saw into the future during a visit to Catapult Transport systems in Milton Keynes to experience what the future holds in terms of Intelligent Mobility. The aim of the event was to inspire students to take STEM subjects at GCSE and it certainly inspired the students involved.

Catapult Transport Systems is one of 11 research and innovation centres set up by the government. They work with the government, industry and universities to enable the modernisation of transport, with the intention is to make the UK a global leader in the industry and grow jobs and companies in this field.

Throughout the day students were able to meet the programme director and take part in a variety of interactive events while competing to win an overall prize.

The students were able to find out about driver-less cars, the prototypes of which were driven round Milton Keynes recently. They learned how they worked and saw them in action and had first-hand experience of virtual reality systems. In addition they got involved in thinking and planning how transportation works in the future.

At the end of the day, students were able to meet several members of the development team and ask questions around their roles and qualifications.

The day was rounded off with a prize giving. Marks were given on students’ performance in each workshop along with answering a quiz. Sir Herbert Leon students demonstrated their understanding well and thoroughly deserved to win the first prize of a model of the driver-less pods presented by the CEO of the company.
