Welcome to Ric Egington Olympic Rower
16 May 2012
The Unicorn were delighted to welcome Ric Egington today to our special assembly. Ric, who is even taller than Mr Pickett at 6ft 6ins, is a world champion at rowing and won silver at the Bejing Olympics. He let all the pupils hold his medal and even ty it on!
We wish him the best of luck in 2012 and will all be watching him on August 5th.
Ric was inundated with questions from our children and answered as many as he could and was a great role model by saying that it was really important to find your talent and then really work at it until you succeed.
Ric was then "mugged " for autographs. We are really honoured to have him visit the school and his easy manner talking to the children was very welcome.
Thanks to Mark Hatlee for organising the visit today.
