We had a very exciting assembly today, when Les Antoine from Team Super Schools joined us.
He gave us information about our forthcoming sponsored sporting event, 'Team Super School', which will be taking place on the afternoon of Thursday 20th May.
For the Team Super Schools event we will be joined by a very special guest - Christian Malcolm- the 200m Olympic athlete. He won a bronze medal at the World Championships in the 4x100m in Osaka, 2007. He also raced against Usain Bolt in the Beijing Olympic Final 200m event, coming in 5th place.
During the afternoon, the children will have the opportunity to ask Christian lots of questions about his athletic career. They will also be able to get his autograph and have a photo taken with him.
The challenge will be a fitness circuit against the clock. Some of the fitness activities include 'spotty dogs' for the younger children and 'sit-ups' for the older classes. Les gave us a brief demonstration today, with the help of some volunteers!
Hopefully the children will raise lots of money through sponsorship. These funds will be shared between the school and Team Super School Award Scheme, which gives financial assistance to talented pupils in their chosen sport so that they themselves may become international stars.
It promises to be a very exciting afternoon, and the children are definitely up for the challenge!
