Earlier this term we were lucky enough to have a visit from Toni Shaw. Toni will soon be 16 but is a member of the Scottish aquatics team, having represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games as well as at the World Para-Swimming Championships.
Toni gave a very interesting talk on her love of her sport, her training and the countries she’d visited as a result of her swimming competitively.
Toni showed a PowerPoint which highlighted her career, so far and she answered some questions. She then, very kindly, visited some of our older pupils in their classes and led some question and answer sessions.
Our pupils were very interested in what Toni had to say and we would like to thank Toni for giving up some of her time to come and talk to our pupils. We hope that her enthusiasm will inspire some of them to take up or progress in their chosen sports. A special thank you to our Active Schools Coordinator, Kim McRobbie for organising this for us.
I would like to apologise for the delay in posting this article.
