Both schools were incredibly lucky to be part of the 'Sports for Champions' project this week. Within this the schools received a visit from GB International athlete Beth Dobbins. She was able to show us the medals she has won in various competitions and talk about her aim to be in the Commonwealth Games and maybe even the Olympics! She was very open with the children and talked about how tough the journey has been for her personally and how much she relied on her mum and coach to see her through. On the day she certainly put our children through their paces doing spotty dog, leg drives, press ups and star jumps! As well as this, Beth got all our children working hard at cheering each other on!
Altogether we raised over £2,500! An amazing amount! Part of this will go towards funding the athletes of the future and part of it will help us fund new sports equipment in school!
Thank you to everyone who sponsored!
