Our students at Nugent House School had stars in their eyes in March when they were surprised with a zoom call from Hollywood stuntman, Shawn Balentine!

Shawn’s video calls have been inspiring, especially for one of our students who has received some fantastic advice that has motivated him to set and achieve a number of personal goals.

During their conversations, Shawn asked our student for five things he would like to achieve over the next 5 years. One of these was to work in maintenance, repairing the site as and when required. Another goal was to take a holiday and arrange this independently! Shawn has advised our student to write a ten-point plan that will help him achieve his goals. Each month he has completed a task to tick it off so that he can see the progress he is making.

One of the student’s ambitions is to enter bodybuilding, and in his words “Look like Dwayne Johnson” (the Rock). Shawn has arranged for one of the UK’s top stuntmen, Nicolas Daines, to meet with him this year and set him up with a gym routine to help him train to meet his goals. Our student has been enthusiastic following his meetings and he fully participates in the discussions with interest.

Shawn has been fantastic with our student and has arranged a follow up call for the end of March.

Thank you so much Shawn for spending some time talking to our students, it means so much to them and will be remembered for a long time to come.
