Gold Medal Fever!

Gold Medal Fever!

It was gold medals galore at St John’s this week when we welcomed a very special visitor. Paul Bennett won gold with the British men’s 8’s rowing team in Rio, and we were thrilled that he was able to spend the morning at school. Everyone was inspired hearing about how the team achieved their goals, and it was really interesting to learn about the rigorous training regime and the hours of practice that Paul and the rest of the team need to do. He tried out one of our rowing machines in the gym, and gave pupils and staff some handy tips and advice. Here are some photos from the day.
