Midfield make healthy choices with Rion

Rion Pierre is a GB 100m sprinter who has represented Great Britain and England in Commonwealth Games and a variety of top class sprinting events. He attended Midfield Primary School, alongside Sportivator Jules, to oversee the whole school being put through their paces with an Olympic style circuit of activities! He then took time to answer questions from the pupils in assembly as well as racing some of the children – and some of the staff!

The children had raised money for the event, with proud family members or friends sponsoring them for completing the activities on offer. At time of writing Midfield have raised an incredible £1040. This amazing contribution from everyone will achieve two things: Importantly it will allow the school to purchase new P.E equipment which will improve the quality of Physical Education and sports taught here. It will also be able to help fund Rion`s training regime in the hope that he can qualify for the Olympics in Rio next year!

“Rion’s positive attitude, work ethic, dedication and ability to overcome adversity have impacted greatly on us all and have taught us the benefits of an active lifestyle and healthy diet. We will strive to continue this at Midfield long into the future, starting with a dedicated Health week commencing on the 9th February 2015.” Read more…
