We were thrilled to welcome current 200m Paralympic champion and world record holder at 200m and marathon, Richard Whitehead MBE, to Alec Hunter last week. Richard was due to be the guest speaker at our Sports Awards Evening which took place in September, but was unable to attend as he was on a plane flying back from the Paralympic games held in Rio! Afterwards, he contacted us to apologise and kindly offered to come into school for a whole day.
Last year the school held an extremely successful week of fundraising for Children in Need, raising £1961! We have been congratulated by the BBC for being in the top 100 schools in the country for our charity work for Children In Need, which we are extremely proud of.
