Carla Humphreys visits Laureate

Arsenal Ladies and England U19 International, Carla Humphrey, visited Laureate on Tuesday 30th June, as part of our ‘Be the Best You Can Be’ project. Carla spoke in an assembly to Key Stage Two about how she has reached where she’s got to so far with her goals, how her biggest goals are still ahead of her, the things that she’s struggled and had to work incredibly hard with, and the positives and fun she’s had too.

The girls’ football team were then treated to some training with Carla and Gareth, from Premier Sports. Drills, skills and a mini-game; autographs, photographs and a lot of star struck pupils. Premier Sports even coached and supported Carla when she was at school; the first steps towards her dream of becoming a professional women’s footballer.

Many thanks to Carla, for giving our pupils an amazing opportunity and a wonderful experience. Thank you also to Gareth for his part in the organisation of it; Premier Sports are also hoping to encourage more girls to take part in football, so keep an eye out for their football fun activities. And - of course - good luck to Carla for the upcoming selection of the England U19 squad, for the European Championships in Israel, in July.
