INVICTUS Games star Derek Derenalagi dropped in to St Helen’s School, in Northwood, to give an inspirational talk.
Mr Derenalagi, who lost both legs in Afghanistan, took part in track and field events at the recent games for injured servicemen and women, and competed in discus and javelin at the 2012 Paralympics.
He told his audience in Eastbury Road about the importance of dealing positively with your situation rather than giving up.
