We were delighted to welcome Team GB athlete James Vogel to the Prep School to speak to pupils about his career and put them through their paces in a sponsored fitness circuit. James is a Team GB rower based at The Leander Club in Henley-on-Thames.
James gave out a variety of prizes to pupils during the circuits which were generously sponsored by friends and families. The tenacious Prep School pupils raised an incredible total of over £2,500 for unsponsored athletes with ActivKids UK, whose goal is to promote fitness and encourage children to be active and live a healthy lifestyle.
We would like to thank James for inspiring our pupils during their assembly where he talked about his illustrious career and the personal challenges he overcame along the way. Everyone at Cokethorpe wishes James the best of luck in his upcoming event at the Henley Royal Regatta this week. We hope to see him representing Team GB again next year at the Olympics in Paris.
