Athlete’s assembly

We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Wheelchair Rugby Player Stuart Robinson to the school on Friday, 10 February. Stuart was a Royal Air Force Regiment Force Protection multiple commander from 1999 until 2013. Injured in Afghanistan in 2013, Stuart had to have both legs amputated. Since then, Stuart turned to wheelchair rugby and competed in the Invictus Games in 2014.

Stuart 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.

Attached is 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:

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 Friday, 17 February 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.
