Athletes Inspire Pupils @ Willowdown
Recently we welcomed ex-footballer Sean from Show Racism the Red Card to Willowdown. Sean and his team member Katie have been working with staff and pupils to help them understand all about racism – what it is, what it isn’t and how to be part of the solution to combatting it. Sean was a hit with the school community and we all learned so much – thanks to Sean and Katie for helping our school to be inclusive and achieve equality. Thanks also for helping us shape our children into ambassadors for the future!
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their first session at Quayside Gymnastics in Bridgwater. They took part in trampolining, gymnastics, parkour, climbing and team building challenges. It was great to see the children challenging themselves in the activities and making the most of an amazing facility. They were also lucky enough to meet Laura Gallagher, who recently competed at the Tokyo Olympics. She shared some of her story and answered some good questions about life as an Olympian. What an experience!
