Launch of the School Games in Blackpool
As we have recently qualified for a county final competition in Athletics, our school was chosen to represent West Lancs at the launch of the Spar School Games. We visited Spar's northern distribution centre in Blackpool. During the day, the children watched a presentation that included a guest speaker, Team GB race walker, Tom Bosworth. Tom gave a motivational speech to the children, explaining his background and his journey from school sport to the Olympics, and becoming the world record holder in his event (he broke the world record again last Sunday for race walking one mile). Our children engaged in a Q&A session with him. Later, we were given a tour of the enormous offices and warehouses at the centre.
