We were recently visited by Sandhill View alumni, Jack Gray. Since leaving Sandhill Jack has worked with football coaches from the Sunderland Foundation of Light and is now training to be a coach himself with this establishment. BT, in conjunction with the Foundation of Light, are in the process of making a short film about Jack’s story, from being a deaf student at Sandhill, to working towards being a professional coach. As part of the film, they wanted to come into school to see where Jack had started his story.
Whilst in school Jack completed a coaching session with all of the Deaf students from the Academy. We were also joined by two S.A.F.C players; Goalkeeper (Lee Camp) and Winger Duncan Watmore. The film produced will be shown at half time during a home match next season. We wish Jack all the best of luck with his coaching career.
