When a world champ visited
Pupils at Discovery School in Whitby had a chance to meet sports royalty last Friday, when former New Zealand squash player Susan Devoy turned up.
Devoy dominated squash in the 1980s and early 90s, and won the world title four times, but the reason for the visit was to talk about her role as race relations commissioner.
Discovery School principal Car- men Jennings said Devoy was very humble and talked to the children about New Zealand and its range of nationalities.
As well as speaking at the school assembly about New Zealand and those who live here, Devoy signed a flag belonging to a school house named after her.
All pupils from Devoy house wore supporting yellow colours.
All smiles: Emma Dullabh, 7, meets Dame Susan Devoy.
