Olympian visits the school – Toby Garbett

On Monday 26th June we were lucky enough to have Toby Garbett, an Olympic rower, come to Markyate. He led a whole school assembly which was great fun and a fabulous way to begin our sporting week.

He explained to the children why he loved sport and how he had persevered to achieve his dream. The children thoroughly enjoyed listening to him speaking and also trying out rowing and triathlon techniques.

Years 4, 5 and 6 will also be taking part in workshops with Toby over the next couple of weeks.
