Meeting an Olympian


International badminton player Heather Olver took Junior School assembly on Friday, inspiring the girls with her achievements and commitment to the sport.

Miss Olver told her story of playing badminton from the age of six, right through to representing her country at the Commonwealth Games and Rio Olympics.

Some girls tried their hand at serving into the audience while others practised their catching skills.

Miss Olver finished her assembly by showing a clip of her representing England at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, where she won a silver medal. 

The girls got to see some of her medals, asked some great questions and were inspired by her success.
