On Wednesday, GB athlete and Olympian, Joe Roebuck visited our school alongside fellow Olympian, Amy Smith.
We begun the day with a fitness session which involved 4 different activities that we had to keep up for a minute each. Although it may sound fairly simple, I think we all agreed it was quite exhausting. As you can see from the faces on the photos though, it was great fun and everyone joined in- even the staff!
After everyone had tried this, we met for an assembly led by our athletes. We heard about the doubts Joe had in his ability to succeed and the way in which he had to persevere throughout his career. It was very inspiring and fantastic for the children to hear how hard you have to try sometimes if you really want something. And that it doesn’t always happen the first time!
