We were excited to welcome Carl from Inspire+ and the Young Sports Ambassadors from Belton Lane to Belmont today. They brought with them exciting news of this year's Legacy Tour.
During the summer, both the Olympics and Paralympics will be taking place in Japan. Our Young Ambassadors led a special assembly to talk about the new sports that will be taking place and we even practiced a little Japanese! Inspire+ Ambassador and World Champion high jumper, Jonathan Broom-Edwards will be competing and our visitors brought with them a special flag. Each school on the Tour will write a message on it to Jonathan and it will be presented to him before he leaves for Japan. Our Ambassadors will be taking the flag onto another school early next week.
Inspire+ will be hosting Grantham's own Mini Olympics at the Meres Stadium in the summer and this year the children from Impala will attend. At the Mini Olympics, each school represents a country and this year we will be representing Switzerland. The class will be very busy making a special flag to proudly parade around the stadium!
