Olympian Visits Hipsburn

28th June 2018
On Monday morning we were delighted to welcome former pupil, Olympic 1500m runner and Commonwealth Bronze medal winner  Laura Weightman to Hipsburn. The morning started with an assembly, Laura told us all about her life as an elite athlete and we were able to ask lots of questions. We learned about the importance of diet and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Then we went out on to the school field for a run. Everyone from preschool to year 6 joined in as well as staff and parents. Laura ran along with us, it was great fun!
