Swim star visits St Bartholomew’s
ST BARTHOLOMEW’S C of E Primary School, in Quorn, were delighted to welcome Adam Peaty MBE, World and Olympic swimming champion to open the new activity trail, called Bart’s Badger Trail. Bart’s Badger Trail consists of 14 activity stations linked by a 300m track.
The children helped to choose the equipment to develop their strength, balance and agility. All the children use the track for the Daily Mile challenge by running, jogging and walking for 15 minutes within every school day.
Bart’s Badger Trail has been developed through the generous support of Tarmac, the National Lottery, Tesco, Waitrose and the school’s PTA. The children were thrilled to meet Adam Peaty who talked about his commitment to physical health and encouraged the children to work with determination to achieve their goals.
He answered some of the children’s questions and then watched the children as they demonstrated using the equipment.
Mrs Judith Boston, the headteacher, believes Bart’s Badger Trail is having a real positive influence on the children’s physical health and well-being.
She said: “It provides fun and challenge for children and staff.”
