The Notre Dame Sport and PE department were privileged this week to welcome ex Great Britain badminton player Jamie Bonsels into college. Jamie arrived to deliver a coaching course to all Level 3 CTEC Sport students, along with anyone else who was interested in improving their badminton or coaching skills.

Jamie, a former St Aiden’s High School pupil, has been a successful badminton player for over twelve years, taking part in many national and international competitions. He currently studies at Leeds Beckett University.

Everyone who took part very much enjoyed the course, which provided practical advice, ideas and experience of badminton and coaching. As well as an increase in the participants’ skills and confidence, each student also finished the day with a certificate of attendance to add to their CV’s.

Thank you to Jamie, the PE department and all the students who enthusiastically took part in the course.
