Olympic Hockey Champions at GSIS!
GSIS was honoured to welcome Helen and Kate Richardson-Walsh onto Campus for a special Meet and Greet with our students, sponsored by the Parents' Community Committee.
Both players won Bronze at the 2012 London Olympics for Great Britain, before winning gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
For this occasion, Ms Franks invited our primary students to attend a very special assembly. After a great welcome and introduction by Thomas (Y6) and Natasha (Y6), everyone was treated to a short film and the opportunity to ask questions, where they could finally find out what it's like to play at the Olympics and who the toughest team to play against is. One of the biggest messages Helen and Kate left with our students is that it's ok to fail - as long as you work hard and focus on teamwork, everyone has the ability to succeed.
As a final surprise, the lucky students were even allowed to touch their Olympic gold medals.
