Olympic Gold Medallist inspires NPS children
Children in Key Stage Two were today treated to a visit and talk by 2012 Olympic Gold Medallist swimmer Josef Craig.
Josef was an inspiration for the children. He entertained them by talking of his own experiences, his attitude toward achieving dreams and overcoming barriers no matter what they are, as well as giving an insight into what it was like to be a competitor in the Olympics.
Josef showed great humour during the question and answer sessions, proving equally adept handling questions about his training, his heroes or the upcoming World Cup!
We will be monitoring his progress in the future and will all reach further for our own goals having listened to him this morning.
