Sports for Schools Event with Michael Churm

12 February 2020

Sports for Schools with ex Team GB Paralympic Athlete – Michael Churm

We had a very special visit from a former Team GB Paralympic Athlete on Wednesday afternoon from a company called Sports for Schools. The aim of Sports for Schools is to bring a former Athlete to your school to undergo some fitness circuits with each class before doing a whole school assembly where the Athlete talks about their life, their challenges and how they overcome their challenges in life to achieve their goals. This is a fantastic way of inspiring the children to show that if they never give up, then they can achieve their goals whether that is in Sport or not. Michael Churm is an ex short distance sprinter who competed at 3 Paralympic Games throughout his career – winning a bronze medal at Beijing in 2008 and also won a silver medal at the World Championships in 2009 too. Michael was fantastic throughout the afternoon and inspired all the children with his speech during his assembly. It is now over to the children to get their sponsorship forms back to raise some money for new PE equipment to use beyond 2020!

Well done to all the children from Key Stage 2 who all completed the Santa Fun Run on Tuesday morning at Victory Park.

Year 6 Match Day Experience

3 December 2019

Match Day Experience – Burnley FC vs Manchester City @ Turf Moor

12 children from Year 6 had a simply amazing experience on Tuesday evening at Turf Moor in the Premier League fixture between Burnley FC and current Premier League champions – Manchester City. All 12 children were the pre-match mascots taking part in the ‘Guard of Honour’ which meant they all stood on the pitch at Turf Moor next to the players tunnel and welcomed all the players from both teams on to the pitch by applauding them all on as they all walked passed. The children got to see all the famous players up close and even got a high five from Burnley manager – Sean Dyche. This experience should be one the children should cherish for many years to come and their behaviour throughout the evening was a credit to the school. Also, a big thank you to Burnley FC in the Community who organized this event for us. We all had a fantastic and memorable night!
