Friday 16th November Olympic visitor

Year four were delighted to have the chance to meet and talk with Carshalton’s own Olympic gold medalist sprinter Harry Aikines-Aryeetey.

The children enjoyed listening to him talk about his experience and they got the opportunity to ask him lots of questions.

They were very inspired and enthused about his visit.

He kindly posed for photos, where every child got the opportunity to wear one of his gold medals. He also gave out his autograph.

Photos of your child with Harry will be sent home next week.

We were very grateful to him for giving up his valuable time.
