Daniel Caines, ex-commonwealth 400 metre runner and record holder, came to Barr Beacon School on Thursday 24th March. During the day year 9 and Year 10 both had the opportunity to listen to Daniel speak about the difference between winning and losing, which could be a difference of as little as 0.019 seconds. What Daniel made abundantly clear, is that we are responsible for our own success, and that success is there for all of us providing that we have the right mindset.
During the day, some pupils in Year 7 and 10 were also invited to take part in workshops with Daniel, that explored team work and self belief. Pupils unanimously enjoyed the day and were grateful to have had the opportunity to have met Daniel.
