The annual Hart & Rushmoor Schools' Sports Awards took place on Tuesday 11th July at Samuel Cody Specialist Sports College. This is a special evening designed to recognise and celebrate sporting achievements within local schools. Three members of the school community were nominated for an award this year.
We are pleased to announce that Bella Chadd won the Determination and Courage Award for her many achievments in Brazilian Jujitsu.
Determination & Courage
An INDIVIDUAL who has shown determination and courage to improve or succeed to achieve their goal, to overcome obstacles and to conquer adversity, pushing oneself beyond expectations and accomplishing the unexpected.
Bella started BJJ(Brazilian Jujitsu) when she was 7 and she is now 9 years old. During this time she has been to many competitions including the British National BJJ Championships and has won 13 medals in total. She has 5 gold,3 silver and 5 bronze medals.
This sport is a self-defence sport, although she has been injured many times she didn’t give up and has improved her skills to achieve her goal.
She has been an amazing inspiration to many children in our school with her determination and success.

When participating in PE, he encourages his team mates and is focused on the activity rather than the winning. He is an exceptional sportsperson who shows commitment and enthusiasm for his sport.
