26/1/16 The whole school completed a gruelling exercise circuit today and even the staff were spotted doing the spotty dog! This is a sponsored event to help raise money for school sports equipment and everyone got stuck in.
This was followed by an inspirational assembly led by Gemma Collis, an Olympic fencing medal winner. Gemma competed in London 2012 and is training hard to secure a place in the 2016 Olympics in Brazil (everyone at ‘The font’ will keep their fingers crossed for you!)
Gemma’s told the children and staff her amazing story of courage through fulfilling her Olympic dream even after losing the use of her legs. I know I feel inspired to never give up on anything – there is no such word as ‘I can’t’! I really hope that we all remember her messages for a long long time to come.
