Sports for ChampionsPosted on: 01/02/2018
On Tuesday 31st January Ezekiel “Zeeks” Ewulo, a Great British and now Nigerian athlete, came to Spires Academy to help promote Healthy Active Lifestyles to our pupils. Whilst at the academy Zeeks put our pupils through their paces with a small fitness circuit. He then gave an inspiring presentation to the whole academy on his life, training and career so far showing the pupils why it is important to have a healthy active lifestyle. Pupils again had opportunities to try out his sport, see and hold his medals and take part in a question and answer session.
As part of the event pupils at the academy raised money to help unsponsored athletes like Zeeks with costs that relate to training and competing at the highest level. As an academy we raised £732, which is an amazing effort from our pupils. A special mention must go to Lucy Fagg in Year 9 who raised £177 - what a great effort Lucy!
