We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Paralympic Sprinter Katrina Hart to the school on Wednesday, 23rd May.

We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Paralympic Sprinter Katrina Hart to the school on Wednesday, 23rd May. Katrina has cerebral palsy and competes in the T37 category. Katrina won a Bronze Medal at the 2012 London Paralympic Games in the 4x100m relay. Katrina will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. In a few days, your child will be bringing home a letter and a sponsorship form for your child to use in order to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by following the below link: www.sportsforschools.org/event/BS930



As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, much of the money that is raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes). Please ensure that sponsorship forms and moneys are returned to the school office on or before Wednesday, 30th May at the latest. Please also make sure that your child/children come to school on the event day with their PE Kits! Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event.
