Islamic Learning Day
Andrew Grant – Inspirational Speaker
Andrew Grant, an ex-pupil of St Elizabeth’s, visited Y6 to deliver an inspiring and motivating talk. Andrew lost his leg whilst serving as a Royal Marine in Afghanistan. He told the children that they can achieve anything they want to and that they must aspire to challenge themselves as Andrew has achieved so much despite his injuries. He recently broke a World Record – Andrew is now the fastest single legged amputee over 10km!
We hope that his talk has inspired us all to take up new challenges.
