ON behalf of the Youth Sport Trust and Sky Sports Living for Sport I would like to extend my thanks to the inspirational pupils and teachers who welcomed me so warmly at Dyson Perrins CE High School in Malvern.
The vision and commitment of the teachers was plain to see and it was wonderful to witness the energy and enthusiasm of all the pupils I met.
They were keen to share their experiences and insights from their Sky Sports Living for Sport project – it was fantastic to see the power of sport in improving young lives in action!
The young people I met on this visit were a credit to the Dyson Perrins CE High School and, as is so often the case in this job, I came away from the school feeling incredibly inspired myself.
Different sports inspire different people but one thing is certain, there’s a sport for everyone and finding it can be life changing. I hope that I have encouraged the pupils at the Dyson Perrins CE High School to find their sport, walk tall, aim high and stay focused on reaching all their goals in life.
