A renowned medal winning Paralympian came to school today to talk to students about her experiences and hold an interactive fitness session. Sporting champion Beverley Jones, a sprinter turned discus thrower, held a short fitness circuit session for groups of Year 7 students. She then spoke to the students about her career and achievements to date and even handed round the discus she used in the London Paralympic games!
More than 25 students from Years 7, 8 and 9 attended a morning with author Hilary McKay, as she read extracts from her book ‘Skylark’s War’.
Last week a group of Year 7 students had the opportunity to meet Rita the reading dog.
