Pupils and staff at Oxley Park Academy were thrilled when Olympic gold medallist Greg Rutherford made a surprise appearance at the school’s Celebration Assembly today.
Greg was invited to present a trophy to the school’s Dodgeball squad who
recently won the Year 5/6 MK Dodgeball Championship. Greg then spent time with
children from the Dodgeball squad in a ‘Question & Answer’‟ session before visiting
the Year 6 children.
Academy principal, Cathy Higgins, said: “It is always a pleasure to have Greg visit our
school to inspire our children. His dedication to working hard to achieve maximum
performance is something we hold dear in all aspects of school life.”
