This week we held a sponsored sports event and welcomed Olympic swimmer Joe Roebuck into school. Pupils completed their set exercises alongside the athlete and heard a special assembly Joe put together about perseverance and aiming high. Joe finished the day by answering questions from the children. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all and helped raise money for additional sports equipment for the school. Here are some comments from the pupils:
" Joe was so inspiring - it has made me want to become a better swimmer."
"His life story was incredible. He was very talented and I enjoyed seeing his medals."
"He told us to never give up, to keep on going and try again. If something is tricky push through it."
