On Friday 5th April the children of Ditton Junior School took part in a sponsored coloured run to raise money for our school.
We all had a lovely day dressing up as our favourite book characters! It was fantastic to see everyone dressed up.
We have all had an amazing day with Brandon Mingeli! The children got a chance to meet him and have a go at some of his training exercises. It was a very inspirational event for all of the children.
Today (14.2.19) we were joined by Brandon Mingeli a 100m GB sprinter. He spoke to the children about his athletic career, his background and what motivates him to keep training.
He has a race time of 10.58 which ranks him 2nd fastest in the UK.
We have a very important guest visiting the children on Thursday 14th February to deliver an assembly to the whole school and some workshops to classes individually. Prior to the event the children will take part in a sponsored walk, jog or run around the playground, each class will be given 20 minutes in order to see how many laps they can complete. Every child recieved a sponsorship form and they have been ask to collect some sponsors for this event. The money that the children raise will go towards supporting the GB athlete that visits us and will go towards buying new equipment for the school. I am very excited to welcome our guest in a few weeks and I hope the children will have a very inspiring day! Thank you for your support – Miss Baker
