Last year Joseph was selected for the U12’s Wales Team in Basketball, this year he trialled for the U14s (even though he only just arrived back from France a few hours before) and received confirmation last night that he’s been selected for their National Squad again. He was one of the 15 selected out of 42, so that proves that growth mindset and hard work pays off. Being on the National Team, Joseph will represent Wales in International tournaments across Europe.
This has been the icing on the cake for Joseph as since he’s returned to school, he has moved from sets 3/4 to 1/2 which has boosted his confidence, especially in Maths as this has always been the “worrying” subject.
I’d like to thank all staff at CCYD for supporting and guiding Joseph through year 7 and hope year 8 is another successful year for him.
