BCHS Awards Evening 2014

07/05/2015

Cricket Coach of the Year Qasim Ali was a busy man on Thursday 6th November 2014, not only did he launch a new cricket academy for four to sixteen-year-olds at BCHS by holding coaching sessions for both primary school students and BCHS students, he was also the guest speaker at the Blackburn Central High School GCSE Awards Presentation Evening at King George’s Hall.

Qasim was chosen to speak at the awards because he is a great role model. He started out coaching as a volunteer for Burnley Council Sports Development Team,and went on to coach in local schools on a voluntary basisbefore continuing his coaching at university.

His address to the BCHS leavers focused on the 1% that can make all the difference to success; all it takes is 1% more effort, or being 1% more focused, or being 1% more committed to stand out and become a success, not just in sport, but in any area.
