Training in Silence

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.
