Athlete Visit

May 3 @ 08:00 - 17:00

We are very excited to be welcoming Commonwealth Games athlete, Nerys Pearce to Ashbrook School on Friday 3 May 2024.

Nerys Pearce has competed in powerlifting, swimming, athletics, rowing, and wheelchair basketball at the Invictus Games winning 10 medals and came fourth in the Commonwealth Games.

She will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all the children,followed by a talk and question and answer session. The event aims to inspire the children to be more physically active and just as importantly, encourage them to discover and pursue their passion in life or as Nery’s motto states ‘be better tomorrow than you are today’.

This is also an opportunity to connect the children to an extraordinary athlete role model and raise money to improve physical activity for the school, whilst also supporting GB athletes including Paralympic athletes.

Sponsorship forms will be coming home in book bags today, to help your child to raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by going to www.sportsforschools.org and clicking on “Set up a fundraiser page”.

When searching for our school, begin to type the school’s name or postcode and our school will come up.

Please ensure that sponsorship forms and money are returned to the school office one week after the event has taken place on Friday 10 May.

Please also make sure that your child comes to school on Friday 3 May dressed in their PE Kit.
