paralympian visit

on November 23, 2016

Today we had a special visitor who was a Paralympian. His name was Dave Henson and he got bronze in the 200m event at the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

He also brought in his gold invictus games medal. In 2014 Dave worked with Prince Harry to organise the first invictus games for injured service men and women because he lost his legs in Afghanistan when he was in the army.

We thought Dave was inspirational and amazing and he gave us a description of his life and answered lots of our questions. He also let us hold his medals and the Paralympic medal made a noise like a rattle.
