On Wednesday 12th October, Mandy Worne, a former parent at St Philip’s came in to speak to the children about life in a wheelchair and how to overcome difficulties and turn them into a positive. Last summer, Mandy had a cycling accident that left her unable to walk. Since then she has taken part in many sporting events including opening the Chichester Half Marathon, scuba diving, and doing a sky dive!
She gave an assembly to KS2 which they found fascinating. She also visited KS1 and spoke to children in class about life in her wheelchair and how to overcome things if they are difficult. It was a lovely afternoon that really inspired the children and staff alike.
