Today we were incredibly lucky to receive a visit from three Team GB Athletes, They delivered an inspirational assembly where they talked about their lives, achievements and also challenges they have faced. Each class then spent some time with one of the athletes working on their discipline and learning more about what it takes to become a world class athlete. 

Ryan Raghoo was a Team GB long jumper with Cerebral Palsy who broke the British record at the Queensland Open Championships.

Emmanuel Oyinbo-Coker is a T46 para-sprinter who recently won gold at the Commonwealth Games.
