Sometimes school trips are just a day out in the world, but sometimes..........they are out of this world
Today I was fortunate enough to be present while this inspirational young man spoke to a group of junior sports ambassadors.
This is Jacob. You can read his story here.
He spoke with confidence and feeling as he described his Olympic experience.
The children listened in silence as he told them of his training and commitment
to the sport he loves.
He showed us pictures of himself with world famous Olympians. He has fantastic memories of the opening ceremony and the matches he played.
But most of all he is an inspiration to us all of how to face our trials and challenges in life, how to get on and not give up. He has a fantastic team around him who have helped and supported him.
I feel blessed to have met you today Jacob,
