Students get a lesson in being good citizens from physio to England Football Team
Teenagers at a school heard inspirational stories from the physio to the England Football Team as part of a special event at their school.
Gary Lewin visited Redden Court School in Cotswold Road, Romford, recently as part of a citizenship project.
Teachers and one of the organisers of the visit, Meg Ryan said: “It was a really inspiring event because he taught the pupils about being good citizens and taking up all the oppertunities life has to offer.”
The visit included a special assembly where pupils were able to quiz Gary about working with the England Manager Fabio Capello.
The event was part of the school’s Rainbow Nation Project, a charity set up to promote international friendship, citizenship and anti-racism.
