Highfurlong School / Courtney Fry

Richard (Y5), Billy, Jayden, Dylan and Owen (Y6) visited Highfurlong School to meet with Courtney Fry, inspirational athlete and Olympic champion. He talked to the children about his boxing career as well as showing videos of his and other boxers. The focus was on putting your energy into good exercise and making good choices. Training in the gym and boxing helped save him from making a bad choice when younger and in turn gave him a successful career.

Mr Ray was astounded at Richards knowledge of boxing and both local and national boxers. Richard described the visit as the “best school trip ever”. Mr Ray chatted with our children, even through the entire lunch break, agreed to have photos taken with the group and as individuals, then autographed the items Richard had taken in to show him.

Mrs Griffiths and Mrs Roberts accompanied the boys and were impressed at how well the boys behaved and interacted with pupils from the other school.
