Finish the Race (Impetus for success)
… “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well” – Baron Pierre de Coubertin. Finish the race uses this principle of the modern Olympic movement to get students to analyse and rethink the way they view their own goals and their perception of what success looks like. Students are challenged to consider the importance of how they finish.
Finish the Race equips and transforms students by…
- Focusing on the concept of what it means to finish something well
- Developing the importance of their attitude in whatever they set their minds to
- Providing examples of how individuals have completed their goals despite setbacks, people’s opinions and impediment of natural ability
- Recognising how you finish something is as important as how you did it
