My story

[p]15 pupils from Beech Hall School are training hard for an English Channel relay crossing as part of Nikki Pope's "Mencap Marvels". With the possibility of two boats, late August and mid-September, what an exciting and adventurous opportunity lies ahead. They have been training since September in Beech Hall's own outdoor swimming pool and, more recently, have been swimming in sub-five-degree water in order to understand that they can withstand so much more than they initially believe. Managing in water that is less warm than we would like is only part of the challenge. If we can build the self-belief that the discomfort is just short-term, then we can build the mental toughness to manage the challenges that the Channel could throw at us.[/p][p]Listen to what they have to say: [url=https://www.dropbox.com/s/wutnoub18ubn2mw/CHANNEL%20EDIT%20120221.mp4?dl=0]https://www.dropbox.com/s/wutnoub18ubn2mw/CHANNEL%20EDIT%20120221.mp4?dl=0[/url][/p][p]Training will continue through the coming months, both in water and on land, both physical and mental, to ensure that our swimmers are as prepared as they can possibly be.[/p][p]At a time when charities have been hit the hardest, please support our incredible pupils' efforts, and those of Mencap. Thank you, in advance, for your help.[/p]
