Children and staff alike were so excited to welcome Dame Kelly Holmes to Clarborough Primary School on Wednesday 4th July. As part of ‘Join in June’ the school posted a video to Twitter asking Dame Kelly to come and visit them. The children re-enacted her winning race of the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Dame Kelly loved the video and chose Clarborough as one of the school’s she was going to visit.
Dame Kelly visited the children in the Foundation Unit; she chatted to them and they also gave her a medal they had made for her. Then Dame Kelly went onto the school field and watched and took part in some of the sporting activities that the children were doing. She was so lovely and encouraged the children as they were doing the activities. After she had been around the activity stations, all the children came together and she delivered a motivational speech to them and had a question and answer session. The children asked some brilliant questions and Dame Kelly answered them in a full and witty way. The children had a truly memorable experience. Thankyou Dame Kelly.
