Today the children in Saint Mary’s had a VERY special visitor. They were visited by an aspiring Commonwealth and Olympic athlete, Beth Dobbin. She conducted a circuit of spotty dogs, mountain climbers, press ups and star jumps with each year group and then did an assembly all about her story to how she has gotten to where she is today. The children all raised money at home or brought in contributions towards Beth’s charity, Sports for Champions, who help aspiring athletes get the training they need to get to the games they want to qualify for. In total the school raised an amazing £620 for the charity! Thank you to all of the parents and carers out there who supported our children in achieving this amount of money, it is greatly appreciated. Below are some pictures of the children taking part in the circuit, along with some images of the children who raised the most money. Well done to Year 3 who raised £142.80 for the charity and won a special certificate and a trophy which will arrive soon. Thanks again to Beth who showed the children that with enough determination and resilience we can achieve anything we set our mind to!
