Athlete surprises geography pupils

Great Britain international JJ Jegede stunned pupils with his knowledge of geography as well as athletics at the Albany School yesterday.

As part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport cross curricular programme Jegede taught pupils in year eight and nine geography classes about countries he has competed in and cultural differences.

During the lunch break he also led a PE masterclass on long jumping and explained to pupils how he is hoping to be selected for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July.

Albany’s School Games organiser Lisa Wilson said: “JJ really brought the classroom alive with his exciting way of teaching and knowledge about travelling the world.”
