Toby Garbett visits Holme Grange School
Two time world champion and Olympic athlete Toby Garbett came into Holme Grange School on Wednesday 13 January to help kick start the Year 7 Sky Sports leadership programme.
Toby, who started off in the field of Rowing has medalled at two world championships and has represented GB in the 2004 Olympic games. Toby shared with the pupils some of his inspiring stories from his sporting career and the trials and tribulations that he had to go through to get to the top of his sporting profession.
Toby then lead the pupils through a series of problem solving tasks that were used to highlight the importance of communication, teamwork, planning and roles within a group, all of which the pupils will go onto explore more during the programme.
The pupils had a thoroughly enjoyable time with Toby and we look forward to welcoming him back to school in March when he will join the pupils again to help them in preparation for their Sky Sports activity morning they will be leading for our Year 2 pupils.Published: January 20 2016
