Students at Oasis Academy Brislington took part in a fun circuits challenge with Robert Mitchell, the current Welsh record holder in high jumper at 2.25m 

The 11 year straight Welsh High Jump champion gave an inspirational talk to our Year 7 & Year 8 students about determination and hard work. He spoke about putting effort into everything that you do and the importance of being active.

Our students were captivated by the Athlete's stories of sitting next to Jessica Ennis-Hill in tournaments and hearing about the countries he'd visited whilst competing.

Over 300 students were challenged to do as many star jumps, spotty dogs, sit-ups and press ups as they could in 1 minute intervals.

Robert Mitchell commented: "Students at Oasis Academy Brislington have given everything today and it as been great seeing them enjoying exercise and living in the moment. There is a lot of distraction in modern day life and my message to young people is to work hard, stay focused and keep active.
