Tokyo Olympian Visits Park Lane

What an amazing day we had at Park Lane Tuesday 16th January to launch our Target Tokyo project! We were visited by GB’s Number 1 Shot and Discus Athlete, Eden Francis, who holds the British U20 Discus record, was the first ever British woman to win Gold at the European U23 Championships, finished 8th in the Commonwealth Games and won Gold at the UK Indoor Championships! Every child had great fun completing the exercise circuit with Eden and then had an inspirational assembly to learn about her training and her successes. Afterwards, each class started their journey to Tokyo by visiting their first country. On this journey, they will learn about the many different cultures around the world and you will be able to view their progress on a map in the hall. Finally, an ENORMOUS THANK YOU to our school community who raised a phenomenal £1400 which will go towards sports equipment for school and to help Eden reach Tokyo 2020.
