The '3D' Ethos
Discipline - the ability to control your own behaviour
Diligence - persistent exertion of body and mind
Determination - strongly motivated to succeed
These three qualities are the attributes needed to succeed in sport. They are common to all great sportsmen and women. At West Park Primary School, in our Sports Clubs, we aim to consistently display our own '3D' mind-set in order to challenge and push ourselves to new heights.
Furthermore, we encourage and remind every child that a '3D' mind-set is not just applicable in the sports world but can be utilised within a classroom setting to progress and achieve academically.
