We were delighted to welcome professional rugby union player Grayson Hart and Kate Adey to the latest event ‘Getting Inside Performance’ in our ‘All Hallows Invites’ programme.
Grayson and Kate presented their talk to our Year 8 pupils in the afternoon who found it really fascinating and enlightening and were very engaged and asked lots of questions. They then welcomed parents and staff with a delicious cheese and wine reception before hosting the discussion on the true nature of performance. Grayson shared his background with the assembled company including his rise to becoming a professional rugby player, the subsequent deterioration in his performance and his understanding of the psychological factors behind this. This led into an open floor question and answer session which produced some lively and interesting debate.
Thank you to Kate and Grayson for taking the time to come to All Hallows and for hosting this thought-provoking discussion. Year 8's photos are on Flickr.
