Senior school pupils were delighted to welcome John Willis to their assembly. John is the Founder and CEO of Power2inspire, a charity that aims to promote a more inclusive society through sport.
Power2inspire wants everyone to have the opportunity to participate in integrated and accessible sport. They have created truly inclusive events called “PowerHouse Games”, delivering adapted sports in schools, organisations, and local community groups. Power2inspire want people to experience the joy of playing sport together.
John himself has participated in 34 Olympic and Paralympic events in the past 18 months – his ‘RoadtoRio’ challenge. He amazed and inspired pupils with his demonstrations of racket sports, hockey and archery, as well as his art. He challenged all our pupils with his message that the strongest determinant of success is to never give up. We are very grateful for his visit.
