Greg Silvester visits St Mary's
Pupils and staff alike met a truly unique individual this Tuesday when they had the pleasure of listening to former Special Olympics Gymnast Greg Silvester regail us with his experiences at the Special Olympics. Children were enthralled to hear about his adventures winning multiple gold medals, carrying the Olympic torch and the exotic faraway places he has visited. He is now a board member of the GB Special Olympics and has qualified to be a coach too. We even got a peek inside the Olympic torch! Never has a more humble athlete graced our stage with such kindness and humility as he told us about adventures most of us can only ever dream about. Thank you for inspiring us Mr Silvester and for encouraging all of us to reach for our dreams without fear.
