On Tuesday 3rd July, five Year 5 children set off for Grantham Meres Leisure Centre as VIP guests at the DRET Summer Cup.
This cup is one of the biggest schools sporting events in the country, with over 2000 children competing in swimming, athletics and table tennis. These five lucky children were the recipients of exclusive Golden Tickets awarded by Skegness Grammar school in recognition of their fantastic athletics achievements.
During their visit, they got to meet Olympic champions Jonathan Edwards, Colin Jackson, Marilyn Okoro, Mark Lewis Francis and Jenny Meadows (who has visited the school previously!). They chatted with the athletes and collected autographs, tried their hand at table tennis and watched some of the school’s athletics competition.
After lunch, they were treated to a visit to Grantham Bowl for a couple of games of ten pin bowling before returning back to school.
A fabulous day was had by all!
