Visiting Olympian

Gemma Simpson

Today, we were lucky to have a visit from Jemma Simpson, who ran in the 800m Olympic race in Beijing last month.  She talked to the children about her experiences in China, memories from her time at Mount Charles and about her training regime.

The children asked a series of questions and were fascinated by the answers Jemma gave.  We all congratulate her on achieving her dream she had as an 8 year old to compete in the Olympic games.

Did you watch the Olympics this year?  What events did you particularly enjoy watching?
