Olympic Athlete Visits Deal Parochial.
Olympic long jumper, Ezekiel Ewulo, visited our school on 10th May and inspired all our budding athletes.
He put each class through their paces, with 4 minutes of circuits; these high tempo, intensive exercises were certainly hard work, but the children loved doing them to music. Ezekiel finished the circuits by challenging the children to fit such exercises into the daily or weekly routines.
Ezekiel then finished the afternoon with an inspirational whole school assembly; it was amazing to watch his standing long jump, and the children had the chance to ask him lots of questions about his athletic career. We will certainly all be looking out for Ezekiel in the 2020 Olympics!
