Paralympic PE lesson at Gaywood School

Pupils at a Lynn school had a lesson in PE from a former Paralympic swimming champion.

Children at the Howard Infant School are pictured above taking part in the session which was led by Clare Cunningham, who won a gold and four silver medals at the Barcelona games in 1992. She later took up para-triathlon, winning European and world championship titles in 2009 and world silver medals in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

The pupils at Gaywood took part in a sponsored fitness circuit to raise money for PE equipment for their school. They also had a very special assembly led by Clare Cunningham about life as an athlete, where the children were able to ask any questions they had.
