Mentors in Violence Prevention : Leadership and the Role of the Bystander

Mentors in Violence Prevention : Leadership and the Role of the Bystander

Our young people have been discussing what skills and qualities are required for a leader particularly in the role of MVP.

They will be developing and using these skills in order to educate peers in topics such as social media use, friendship interactions etc and may have to use their leadership traits to deliver sessions on topics that people find challenging or have fixed views about.

The role and responsibility of the bystander is to speak up and interrupt inappropriate statements / behaviour : the standard we walk past is the standard we accept.

Alford Basketball Coach Development

Alford Basketball Coach Development

One of the junior basketball coaches, William, has recently started coaching his own primary teams on a Wednesday after school. He also plays and captains the senior team at Alford as well as playing for the Alford Bears adults’ team.  On the 20th May, William completed his Level 1 referee course, delivered at Alford Academy with seven other candidates.  William’s dedication to his coaching and basketball, in general, has been incredible and he has shown maturity and enthusiasm as a great leader in everything basketball. We would like to take this opportunity to thank William for his volunteering efforts and congratulate him on all he has achieved so far.  If you are interested in basketball coaching, refereeing or table officiating, please see Mrs Niven or the Active School sports co-ordinators for more information.
