As part of our whole school focus on 'A healthy active lifestyle', we were delighted to welcome a professional athlete, Joe Ikhinmwin, into school on Wednesday 23rd May. Joe is a professional basketball player and is currently the captain of the London Lions Basketball team. He recently represented England in the Men’s Basketball team at the Commonwealth Games and has taken part in other tournaments with the England team.
Joe started the day with a whole-school assembly and shared his inspiring story about how he became a professional player. Classes then worked with Joe throughout the day and thought about how they could be as active and healthy as possible. All of the children were really pleased to work with Joe and he was very impressed by the creative and insightful questions from the children. Overall, it was a great day and we are looking forward to continuing this work next half-term when another athlete will work with classes. Please take a look at the photos below!
