COURSE tutors Mark Hibbert and Rebecca Smith and apprentice Patryk LeVan have been working with The Regis School to deliver a six-week GB National Boxing Awards course, including work towards the Asdan certificate of personal effectiveness.
Nine students have completed their preliminary award.
Josh Ward, Kavanagh Bressington, Nathan Edicker, Mikey Blissett, Ashleigh Lambert, Jamie Wharton, Joe Harris, Harry Dumville and Ciaran Barnes-Cornish were presented with certificates.
The students organised and took part in a debate regarding the moral issues surrounding boxing, arguing their points before a vote went in favour of boxing.
A second course has begun covering the standard award and including further work towards the Asdan.
These students will research, design and cost a boxing gym.
They thanked David Jones, Caroline Saunders, Margi Gibbs, Sherryl Urquhart and Nicole Knight for their support. Peter Cox and Charlie Martin at VK Gym were also thanked for continued support.
