He said: “Zeeks came in dur­ing the af­ter­noon and led a fit­ness cir­cuit for the chil­dren and spoke to the chil­dren dur­ing assem­bly.

“He spoke about his ex­pe­ri­ences in events and had two medals to show the chil­dren.

“Zeeks spoke about eat­ing healthily and that with hard work you can achieve any­thing you set your mind to.

“It was a fun af­ter­noon, the chil­dren were in awe of Zeeks.
