We would like to thank Joe Clarke MBE who is from Stone, for kindly agreeing to be our Guest Speaker at our end of year Prize Giving ceremony on Wednesday.
Joe gave a motivating speech and talked about his achievements in canoeing to date and his amazing Olympic Gold win in Rio.
Joe engaged with our pupils, parents and staff by talking about the opportunities he had been given, the sacrifices he and his family have had to make, the hard work and dedication that is required and how he is now focusing and training for the next Olympics in Tokyo 2020.
He also spoke about being appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2017 New Year Honours list, for services to canoeing.
Thank you, Joe, for your inspirational speech and for taking the time to visit and engage with all our pupils, staff and parents.
