Visit from an Olympian Athlete - 16.11.23

Updated: Nov 29, 2023

Today we welcomed Joe Roebuck to our school - GB Olympic swimmer, ten times British Champion, double Commonwealth silver medallist, double European medallist and London 2012 Olympic semi-finalist. His events are the 100m and 200m Butterfly and the 200m and 400m Individual Medley.

Together with Emma, the Sportivator, our school was overtaken with sponsored activities for the first part of the day followed by an inspirational talk from Joe about his journey to success.

It took exceptional hard work, dedication and resilience for Joe to reach the top of his game and the message he gave all our pupils today was invaluable - don't give up, believe in yourselves!

All children completed their activities and are busy collecting sponsor money which will go towards sports equipment for our school. The visit was part of the Sports for Schools programme - a social enterprise that brings the country's top athletes into primary schools to encourage children to be more active.

What an inspiring day - and one full of activity and exercise. The Olympic legacy was very evident at Pheasey today and you never know, we may have some future Olympians amongst our pupils!

Well done to all of you today!
