Schools for Sports Sponsored Event

We are thrilled to be able to share some more information about our upcoming Sports for Schools event which will be taking place on Wednesday 26 June. We are excited to announce that the athlete who will be visiting us will be Nerys Pearce.

Nerys was injured in a road traffic accident which left her paralysed from the chest down. She wanted to remain active following her accident and has since competed in powerlifting, swimming, athletics, rowing and wheelchair basketball at the Invictus Games winning 10 medals. Nerys came 4th in the Commonwealth Games.

On the event day, all pupils will take part in a sponsored fitness circuit run by their athlete, a terrific way to get all children excited about sport and realise that getting moving is really fun! Their athlete will then share their incredible sporting journey, a story of resilience and determination, in a fun and interactive assembly. There will also be an opportunity to ask any burning questions in a Q&A session with their inspiring role-model at the end.

Fundraising for the event will begin next week when the children will be bringing home a sponsorship form. The money raised for the event will go towards new important resources to improve levels of physical activity in our school, such as new sports equipment.
