Sports Awards Evening

12/07/17

Last night saw the school's prestigious Sports Awards Evening with our guest speaker, Will Bayley MBE being held.

Will Bayley MBE was born with arthrogryposis (curved joints at birth) which is a debilitating condition that affects movement in all four limbs.  At age 7 Will was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma resulting in gruelling and numerous chemotherapy sessions.  His grandmother brought him a table tennis set to help distract him and help his rehabilitation.  In an interview with the BBC, Will credits his past experiences have helped him develop an 'unrivalled winning mentality'.

Will took Silver in London 2012 and then through hard work and dedication achieved his dream of Gold at Rio 2016.

Will is currently ranked number one in the World and has been European champion in 2011 before becoming World Champion in 2014.  What an inspiration!

The North School were honoured to hear Will's story last night and hope that our students can be inspired by his determination and resilience to succeed despite any setbacks that might be experienced along the way.

We should also like to thank our sponsors West One Interior Solutions for their continued support with running our annual Sports Awards Evening.
