Paralympian inspires students

Students were treated to a celebrity visit when Steve Brown, GB Wheelchair Rugby Captain, came to ARK William Parker on Wednesday, 14th May. He visited the academy as part of the Sky Sports “Living for Sport” initiative, which aims to motivate and inspire students. Steve spent time getting to know the students and sharing his experiences of captaining Great Britain at the London 2012 Paralympics. He also shared his inspirational story of how he came to be a wheel chair rugby star.  The boys showed great interest in Steve’s talk and enjoyed taking part in the team building games. 
Steve will be revisiting the academy on 2nd July to look at the progress made by the group and he has already emailed to express his excitement at working with the boys again.
