Olympic Athlete Visit- Jess Roper
We were delighted to welcome this afternoon to school Jess Roper—2x English Kickboxing Champion, 2nd degree black belt and award winning public speaker.
Jess began by leading an inspiring assembly motivating the children to follow their dreams, regardless of the hurdles and obstacles they may face. Next, she taught us her very own superman move with volunteer children.. and staff! She also ran a question and answers session. The children were interested in her diet, if she had ever been badly injured and her walk on music. Later, the children took part in fitness activities and games in the afternoon. Feedback from children and staff was extremely positive. Jess travelled down from Hastings to visit our school and we look forward to following her career as she continues to challenge herself and motivate others.
