Annie Vernon, Olympic Silver Medallist works with Year 7 Healthy Lifestyle Champions

Annie Vernon, Olympic Silver Medallist, motivates and inspires Year 7 And 10 students.

Annie provided a fantastic insight into her life as an elite athlete which included representing Great Britain in rowing at two Olympic Games.

As part of the Youth Sports Trust programme, Annie led a fantastic workshop session with Year 10 students on goal setting and in the afternoon worked with Year 7 students on a health and well-being festival.

As a result of that, eight Healthy Lifestyle Champions from Year 7 planned and delivered an event full of fun activities to a group of 50 of their peers on the fields at Newquay Sports Centre.

Both the champions and the participants got a huge amount from the day with Annie commenting on the leadership of the champions and engagement of the participants and we look forward to their continued participation during sessions being planned for after half term
