We were very excited to have welcomed GB Olympic Diver Rebecca Gallantree to the school on Friday 3rd February 2017. Rebecca has competed in three Olympic Games: Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016. She has also competed at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games and won a gold medal in the 3m synchronised diving event with partner Alicia Blagg in 2014.
Rebecca lead a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and followed up with a talk and question and answers session. The aim of the event was to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life.
Well done and thank you to all the Sponsorship money. We have raised over £900 that will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes).
Thank you also to Gill Lynch at Harsco for their continued support. They have donated water bottles and pedometers for us to use in P.E
