Olympic athlete visits Aigburth High

Olympic and Commonwealth Games athlete Michelle Vidler visited our school on Wednesday 29th January to help launch the Sky Sports “Living for Sports” programme with 7M. The children will benefit from a series of six weekly extra-curricular sessions, with LJMU’s Lauren House, to further develop and enhance their confidence, self-esteem and sporting ability.

Michelle initially visited 7M in their classroom where they discussed her background and sport (Judo). The children also examined a small sample of the medals Michelle had won during her career. The action then moved to the gym where the class demonstrated their teamwork in a number of games and challenges. Everyone who took part was very enthusiastic and they are already looking forward to their next session!
