Mr Ball’s Radio Sessions

A group of lucky students have been working with Mr Ball recently to interview members of our community who have had to challenge themselves – a core value of Rudston.

In the first interview, the children interviewed Mr O’Dwyer about overcoming adversity.

Everton U21 Interviews:

Our writing groups, that work with Mr Ball, have used their skills to put together a short letter to ask if Everton could provide any players that have lived through a challenge and would be prepared to come to school and discuss their challenges and how they overcame them, through a radio interview. We were lucky enough to receive a reply and on Thursday 21st April we had a visit from Courtney Duffus and Mateusz Hewelt (Everton U21s). They came into school and we had some really interesting conversations about their injuries and how they overcame them. Thank you to Courtney, Mateusz and Everton for their time and being so honest in their interviews!
