Katie Stainton visit

On Friday 14th December, our children were visited by athlete Katie Stainton. Katie recently competed in the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast of Australia.

Katie spoke to the children about her resilience to overcome a devastating injury and her dedication to her training regime, which very much inspired our children!

During the visit, the children raised £312.65 in sponsorship money  – wow!

It was lovely to hear Katie say how impressed she was with the children and that she would love to come and visit us again. Well done children.
