Jonathan Rea Supports Honda’s School of Dreams

Hannspree Ten Kate Honda World Superbike rider Jonathan Rea visited Holy Trinity College in Cookstown, Northern Ireland, as part of Honda’s ‘School of Dreams’ programme. The visit was made on March 4-5 and was destined to provide a two-day ‘thinking skills’ workshop for 9-13 year old pupils and educators.

According to Honda, the programme is designed to help young people understand the importance of pursuing their dreams, and taught skills and strategies to help turn their dreams into reality.

Rea attended the workshop as a real life example of a young local who has worked hard to achieve his dream of motorcycle racing on the world-stage.

At the end of the 2009 WSBK season, the Hanspree Ten Kate Honda team agreed to keep Jonathan Rea for another two years. The 22-year-old rider therefore continues to compete riding the Honda CBR1000RR.

“The pupils really loved the two days, and it was great to see the pupils from the different schools working together in their teams. It will have helped them realise that as individuals they are unique, but that school life and life in general requires teamwork,” added Chris Callan, Science Technician at Holy Trinity College.

“It is great to support the workshop in our local school. To help children understand they can turn their dreams into reality by learning to use strategies in their early lives will undoubtedly have a positive effect on the local community. We believe children and young adults deserve all the help they can get,”
added Nigel Cole, Dealer Principal at Donnelly & Taggart Honda in Ballymena.
