At Lexis Manly, we continuously seek to enrich the educational experience for our students through the fun activities we offer. Our teacher Maggie, with her infectious enthusiasm for boxing, has introduced our students to the sport, through a fun, beginner class. Our students had the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of boxing today, including proper technique, footwork, and the art of self-defence. Engaging in boxing not only enhances physical fitness but also provides an enjoyable opportunity to challenge the mind and body. Teacher Maggie’s expertise and passion for boxing, made the session engaging and enjoyable, allowing our students to not only learn the basics but perhaps even develop a new found interest or hobby.
Unleashing Strength & Discipline:
Boxing is more than just a physical activity; it is a sport that nurtures mental fortitude, physical strength and emotional resilience. Beyond the physical aspect, boxing instills discipline, focus, and a sense of self-development, fostering a well-rounded approach to the students’ personal development. As they learn various techniques, students gain a deeper understanding of their capabilities, influencing their approach to both academic and personal challenges. This goes beyond the class today, empowering students to approach challenges with resilience and an unwavering spirit.
Promoting Teamwork & Unity:
The boxing class today emphasised the values of sportsmanship, teamwork and unity here at Lexis Manly. Students not only developed individual skills but also learnt the importance of mutual respect, and supporting one another, which in turn created an overall, positive environment where our students were able to motivate and support each other. This sense of camaraderie will extend beyond the boxing session, contributing to a cohesive and inclusive school community.
Embracing Fitness & Wellness:
Our active afternoons here at Lexis Manly are always a great chance for our students to balance the hard work in the classroom with a fun, yet fitness inducing challenge. Physical activity is integral to a balanced lifestyle, and boxing provides an avenue for students to priotise their physical well-being whilst also fostering mindfulness. It’s the perfect opportunity to manage stress, channel energy productively and develop a deeper connection between the mind and body.
Thank you to everyone for joining this active afternoon!
