        On Thursday 28th April, Year 6 were incredibly lucky to be visited by Sophie Devonish. Sophie – a former GB swimmer- learned to swim as a way of keeping active as a child but went on to be far more than a recreational swimmer. In 2008 she won 200m individual medley silver at the European Junior Championships. She went on to qualify for London 2012 by finishing second in the same event at the Olympic trials and later landing a Bronze at the 2014 British Championships. Year 6 children were in absolute awe of her phenomenal achievements.

        As part of the Inspire+ workshop with Sophie, the Year 6 children discussed about what their aspirations and goals are for the future. The children acknowledged that in order to achieve any goal an incredible amount of hard work, perseverance and courage is needed. And sometimes, just like in Sophie’s Career, you may come across hurdles or stumbling blocks but it’s how we learn to continue to strive to achieve that goal that defines us. Our Year 6 children discussed a wonderful array of future career goals from, computer programmers, scientists, playwriters and fashion designers. It is safe to say the children really enjoyed their morning that has left them truly inspired and full of aspirations for the future. Mr Revell (Year 6 teacher) said, “It was incredible to see the children showcasing their God-given talents throughout the workshop and we cannot wait to see them achieve their hopes and dreams in the future.”
