Sports for Champions UK

24th May 2022

Today we were delighted to be joined by the elite High Jump Champion Robert Mitcham. Robert is part of the Sports for Champions UK programme that visits schools to inspire, motivate and celebrate well-being and life's journey.
As you can see from the photographs the children were enthralled by his motivational talk and with him sharing how he became an elite athlete .... after realising at the age of 7 he could jump high!
His dedication, hard work and resilience has led to him achieving many awards including Welsh national record holder with a 2.25 metre jump, a Commonwealth Games finalist in 2002 and 2006 as well as representing GB from 1998-2014.
The children and staff loved being put through the circuit training session and this wonderful event was well supported by many families in the school community. We have now raised just under £200 for Wild Tribe resources. 
What a FANTASTIC week we are having celebrating the Platinum Jubilee and all things British.
