Image Description

17th October 2018 — On Wednesday 17th October Knighton House had their ‘Sports for Schools’ sponsored circuit event with David Hill, Paralympic Triathlete. The Knighton pupils took part in a circuit which included spotty dogs, leg drives, press-ups and star jumps.

David was born without the lower part of his left arm and after 12 years of international swimming decided to change sports to British Para-triathlon. It was fascinating to hear from David and Knighton are very grateful that he spent the afternoon with us. Great fun for both pupils and staff!
