On Monday 1st April we were lucky enough to have Mike Mullen as our guest speaker in assembly. The pupils were engrossed in his life story, growth mindset concepts and thought he was fantastic! Mike developed the BMX Academy which uses BMX bikes to help school pupils to develop stronger mindsets and improve their wellbeing. His key concepts focused on: Finding Courage for scary tricks. Learning from Failure and Rising Above set backs and adversity.
Mike showed us some of his own skills and tricks as well as getting Mr Roberts to face his own fears head on and learn a trick on his BMX. Overall, the assembly was thoroughly engaging and all pupils and staff were able to take new ideas of growth mindset.
