Star Students: Conor and Talia

This week’s star students are Conor Selby from Year 8 and Talia Rawling from Year 7, who both attended the ICO Celtic Open (Mixed Martial Arts) Championships in Wales last weekend – Conor came away with a Gold trophy, two silver medals and a bronze medal and Talia came away with two silver medals and a bronze medal!Talia Rawling Kickboxing (800x582)

It takes a huge amount of courage to compete in these sorts of sports and we’ve heard that one of Conor’s fights ‘reduced many spectators to tears’ – one he should be proud of! They would also like to thank Byrne Black Belt Academy for all their support and training to help them achieve.


Incredible achievements, well done to our inspirational students Conor and Talia.
