Lutalo Muhammud – GB silver medalist, Rio 2016
A select few students were privileged enough to meet the world famous Lutalo Muhammud during Super Learning Day 3. A year 7 student said ‘Today we had an amazing experience with a GB Olympian – Lutalo Muhammud. A Taekwondo legend taught us how discipline can come a long way and that you really can achieve your dreams. It was great to see his physical technique when he kicked the targets. Thanks to Miss Moore for this amazing opportunity.’

If you are interested in Table Tennis please come to club on Monday lunchtimes with Miss Maxwell.
