Graham Edmunds, twice gold paralympic swimmer both entertained and educated the children today about life as an athlete.
Graham wowed the children with the story of his life as a paralympic swimmer. Not only did he amaze and inspire them he made them laugh at his funny but heart warming stories. During the course of the day he spent time running workshops with the children. Although these sessions were fun and the children had a fabulous time, they were also set with challenging tasks which helped them understand the difficulties faced by people living with disabilities. The children loved having him in school and took every opportunity to ask for autographs.
