Despite the rain Sports Day wasn’t a wash out after all thanks to our special guest Adam Walker. Adam came to school to give an incredible talk on his life and how he became inspired to achieve the most remarkable feat.
Adam, a salesman for Russell Hobbs, decided firstly to challenge himself to swim The English Channel. After reaching that goal he set about achieving what is seemingly an impossible task. To swim all seven oceans. The Seven Oceans Challenge saw him travel the world and swim in freezing temperatures, treacherous currents and deadly marine life including sharks and a Portuguese men o’ war who gave him a present he will never forget.
His story had staff and pupils alike engrossed and made us all feel like anything is possible. As Adam says “NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. BELIEVE, ACHIEVE, SUCCEED.”
The school would like to thank Adam for giving up his time and giving us the most inspirational presentation that I’m sure any of us have ever heard.
