Morgan Academy pupils heard how having a positive attitude can help them achieve their goals, during a visit from a champion boxer.
Lynn Calder made the first of three visits to the school to work with a group of S3 pupils who are involved in a growth mindset project.
The group is part of a pilot scheme which has been designed to ensure the pupils’ motivation and positive attitude supports their ability to achieve level five qualifications in S4.

“Lynn is a Winning Scotland Foundation Champion and she focused on how having a growth mindset has helped her to overcome the challenges she has faced and she also did a few simple boxing exercises with the group.
“Lynn’s visits have been funded by the Dundee Common Good Fund following a joint bid with Stobswell Forum, who are also involved in the project.”
