Welsh National Squash Player Visits Moreton First

Hannah Davies who plays squash for the Welsh national team came to our assembly to speak to Moreton First. Miss Davies teaches Science to Years 4, 5 and 6 in Moreton First, however her passion is playing squash.

She had a personal tale to tell about the disappointment she felt  when she was not selected for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014. Determined not to allow this disappointment end her squash career for Wales she pulled herself together and showing great resilience was given an opportunity to take part in trials for the Ladies Welsh team at the World Team Championships 2016. Miss Davies trained hard, won the trials and confirmed her place in the team, representing Wales once again!

The assembly hall was hushed as the children listened to her emotional story. She encouraged all of Moreton First to be resilient and reach for their dreams, never giving upon ambitions. Her motto which she encouraged the children to always remember was ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’.
