Ranby House School have visit from No1 Triple Jump Champion
04 February 2011
Recently, Olympic hopeful Senior and Junior Triple Jump Champion Laura Samuel together with GB 800m Runner Charlotte Best joined Ranby House School pupils who were taking part in a sponsored activity for the Sports For Schools Challenge.
Some of the money raised will go towards Ranby House School who have decided to donate their monies (hopefully in the region of £1,000) to the Cedar Foundation, which facilitates positive social change in Bulgaria by assisting in the provision of quality, community-based care for disadvantaged children and young persons. The remainder of the money will be received by Sports for Schools, who make contributions towards the training costs and resources for young hopefuls working towards the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The pupils took part in four different strenuous physical activities over the course of the morning. However, the real excitement was when Laura Samuel gave a demonstration of her skills as a Triple Jump Champion to the whole school and staff. The photograph shows the two sportswomen with four of Ranby House School’s hopeful sports scholarship candidates who will be sitting a Scholarship to their respective senior school shortly.
