Yesterday we had the team GB heptathlete Katie Stainton visit our school, we raised a total of £316! There were even some individual children who did exceptionally well and amazingly managed to raise over £35! They had their photo with Katie, and that will be something to look back on when she is hopefully competing in the World Championships this year and the next Olympic Games.
The children participated in a short fitness circuit that they can have a go at doing at home. Katie talked to the children about her experiences; her high points, her low points and how it is important never to give up on your dreams. I thought it was particularly interesting how Katie had tried so many different sports at a young age and only started her journey into athletics at the age of 11. There might be many future team GB athletes here at Cockshutt!
