Paralympic Inspiration

On Wednesday 7th November we were lucky enough to host two Paralympic Athletes at our school, these athletes took part in the London 2012 Paralympic Games and both received medals.

Harriet Lee won Bronze in Swimming and Matt Skelhon won Bronze and Silver Medals in the Rifle Shooting.

The athletes inspired not only students from our school, but also our local primary schools, when they talked about their experiences from competing for Great Britain.

It was really nice that our students were able to meet the athletes and ask some interesting questions, it brought back the excitement of London 2012 Games.

Harriet and Matt said that they really enjoyed their visit to Jack Hunt and thanked us for our kind words on our “Thank you” video. They hope to have helped encourage the next generation of sporting stars.
