We had a visitor in school today: Becky Lyne. Becky gave the school an inspirational assembly this morning concerning her sporting achievements. From tearful cross-country runs in her early primary years, she ended up in 2nd place as a Y6 that spurred her on to chose running as a focus sport as she grew older. This led her to win a bronze medal at the 2006 European Athletic Championships in the 800m. It is wonderful for the children to hear about how hard work and passion can reap such rewards.
She then spent time with each class, providing a range of sports including netball, hockey, football and athletics.
Great messages, great activities and great fun all round – thanks Becky
