We were delighted to welcome gold winning Paralympic high jumper Jonathan Broom-Edwards to our online talk on Friday 8th December at 11am. This event was for schools and home educated children.

Finding something that you are good at and sticking with it even when it becomes difficult is something athlete Jonathan Broom-Edwards MBE knows all about.  When injury meant he might have to give up on his dream to continue to compete at the highest level, Jonathan dug deep within himself to find the strength to persevere and overcome the barriers that stood in his way.  His resilience paid off and in 2021, Jonathan was crowned Paralympic T64 High Jump Champion at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Jonathan inspired students to learn how believing in themselves will help them to be the best they can be, in whatever they choose to do. This talk was full of lessons for everyone, no matter their journey or their hopes for the future.

We were joined by BSL interpreter Sarah Hobbs for this event.
