Sport4Life

Background

Sports4Life Project plays a significant role in Our Lady Mary Seacole supplementary school’s (OLMSSS) curriculum and ethos, (www.olmsss.com). Its objective is to provide children and young people with sport and games for recreation and health. The programme is funded to provide non-traditional sports such as archery, rowing, fencing and fun-filled classroom games like chess, backgammon and bridge. But OLMSSS can offer extra sports like lawn tennis, table tennis, taekwondo and basketball. Sports4Life activities are accessible to everyone, regardless of race, creed, gender, sexuality, ability and or disability, from age seven.

Sports4Life Philosophy

Sport4Life is one of the Institute of Black Culture, Media and Sport’s elite provisions. Its purpose is to embed pursuit of a healthy lifestyle into supplementary educational frameworks, and encourage pupils to start this lifestyle as early as possible. Sports4Life encourages and advises pupils and young people to regard and treat sport as part of an holistic academic experience—healthy body, healthy mind framework, so they will not feel the need to sacrifice one for the other, as sports-focused pupils tend to do. The institute wants to reduce the likelihood of situations developing where young people unable to make careers in sport, fail to make use of academic education; or situations in which young people can be persuaded to believe that because they’re sport-talented, they are unsuited to academic excellence; or that academic excellence is irrelevant and unnecessary for sport-talented pupils. Put simply, sport is part and parcel of a good or sound supplementary education experience and it is unnecessary to sacrifice one for the other.

Biography

Our Lady Mary Seacole
Mary Seacole was born in Kingston, Jamaica in 1805. Her father was a Scottish soldier, and her mother ran a boarding house where she cared for invalid soldiers and their wives. Mary learned medicine from her mother and gained reputation as a skilful nurse.

A born healer and a woman of driving energy, Mary overcame official indifference and prejudice. She found her way to the Crimean war (1853-1856) at her own expense; and risked her life to bring comfort to wounded and dying soldiers. Mary Seacole became the first Black woman to make her mark on British public life; but was relegated to obscurity until recently. Her reputation for service during the Crimean War rivaled Florence Nightingale's.
