Visit to St ChadÂ’s School, Patchway.

Jack was on hand for the presentation of Paralympic Sports Equipment to pupil's at St Chad's C of E VC Primary School today. The equipment was donated by Sainsbury's, and the manager of their Filton store, along with two members of staff, were also present at the event. This was part of a scheme promoted by Sainsbury's in the run up to next year's Paralympic Games in London, where primary age pupils are able to use equipment which allows them to play sport in the way that participants at the Paralympics will do.

'I was delighted to be visit the school and to be present at this event. I would like to thank Sainsbury's for their very kind donation and for promoting Paralympic sports across the country. I am sure that using the equipment will allow the pupil's at St Chad's to have a much better grasp of what it means to be a disabled sportsman or woman.'

Jack also met the new Head Teacher, Mr Darren Brown, and talked through some of the challenges and opportunities facing him in his new role. Jack is pictured with Mr Brown, the Manager and staff from Sainsbury's Filton store and St Chad's pupils with the new equipment.
