Craig McCann's visit
Lesson: Physical education
Craig McCann visited us with Tony, the Sportivator.
They organised a fitness circuit for us that included star jumps, press ups, leg drives and spotty dog exercises.
Then Craig shared his inspirational story.
Craig's dream was to join the RAF. When he went for a medical, the doctor discovered a brain tumour. Following an operation to remove this brain tumour, Craig’s hearing, speech and use of limbs on his left hand side were affected.
Craig could no longer achieve his dream of joining the RAF.
In 2010, Craig started a new career in wheelchair fencing. Then he started to work towards being the best wheelchair fencer he could be.
Craig was a Paralympian fencer and competed at the London Olympics in 2012.
Now Craig is a Paralympian cyclist. He hopes to be cycling at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
Craig told us that to be the best we can be, we need to:
DO OUR BEST
SAY YES TO OPPORTUNITIES
We enjoyed Craig’s visit -
both the fitness circuit when we worked hard and were energetic
AND Craig’s talk which inspired us to
BE the BEST we can BE!
