We had a fun afternoon in February. We met a Sports Champion, who spent the afternoon talking to our school about her training regime and all the hard work she needs to put into her training. She was very dedicated. She showed us photographs of people who inspired her and this was good as she asked us who inspired us as well.
Just before Christmas we watched a video about the Sports Champions and how we as a school can help the athletes dreams come true. We were given sponsor ship forms and over the Christmas break we collected sponsors. We were only allowed to ask our family as it would be dangerous to speak to strangers. We then brought our sponsor money into school. Our athlete was called Naomi and she was a triple jumper. All money raised in school was split between school and our athlete. It was great for school because we were given 60% of all the money raised. Our school as £700.98!!
Over the coming few weeks the School Council are going to look at ideas for spending our money. We are already collecting ideas from our class friends.
