On 14th November a group of Year 13s took part in a leadership workshop led by athlete Tim Prendergast. Tim has competed in four Paralympic games, winning a gold medal in Athens 2004 in the 800m -T13 event. Now he works as an athlete mentor for the Youth Sports Trust – inspiring students by sharing his own experience of overcoming disability to succeed.
The workshop included ideas on how to differentiate activities to cater for all abilities and also planning and coordinating an event. As a result of their training, the Year 13s will be organising an inclusive festival for students from KHS and our local special schools in the spring term.
