Try Your Best

This morning Owen Stonnard shared his cub promise with us all in assembly. One of the sentences in the promise is "I promise to do my best." We talked about what this means and I showed the children a wonderful sporting video clip of Dave Wottle winning the 800 meters Olympic Gold medal in 1972. Dave had had an injury but still took part in the race. From being 20 meters behind the pack throughout the race he made an astonishing final sprint and won the race. It was great to hear the children all gasp as they saw him crossing the line first.
