Year 11 GCSE students are now in no doubt that the sky is the limit after motivational speaker Action Jackson visited MC&MA last week.
He held talks and workshops with pupils at both sites on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th February.
Wearing his signature ‘Live Your Dreams’ t-shirt, Jackson used exciting and entertaining presentations, worksheets, acting and singing to inspire the students.
They are currently preparing coursework and studying for May examinations.
Speaking to The Academy Extra, Jackson said: “The pupils have been very focused. [They have been] learning a lot from what’s been going on so it’s been good.”
Reflecting on how essential success is for our boys and girls, he added that motivational speaking should feature as much in schools as it does in business:
“It’s more important to start in school rather than in business. Because the people you get in business started building the habits when they were in school.
“So instead of fire fighting later on, let’s prevent the fire by instilling in our children that they can do anything they want.”
