Just before the holidays something really exciting happened at John Gulson. The children got to meet a gold medal winner from the Common Wealth Games. Leon Baptiste, came to the school for the whole day and spent a lot of time with the children completing different activities and sporting exercises. We started with Year 6 in the morning and worked our way down the school throughout the day. After speaking to the children, I can tell you it was absolute success and they cannot wait for another athlete to visit our school next year. Just before the end of the day Leon gave a speech to the children in the KS2 hall about his life and how he made it to become an athlete. It was very inspiring to listen to and you could have heard a pin drop in the hall as the children were very intent, listening to every word that Leon had to say.
Thank you again Leon for visiting our school, we all enjoyed ourselves very much.
