Be inspired - a visit from the world's tallest basketball player

At the start of the new term, we were really lucky to have a visit from professional basketballer Paul Sturgess. 

Paul is the tallest basketballer in the world and played for a number of teams in America, including the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters.  Since retiring from basketball, he has pursued a film career and has appeared in Marvel films, the Lord of the Rings series and Fantastic Beasts.

As well as teaching the children some amazing basketball skills, Paul also had a powerful message to share about being different.  He has embraced his height and, because of this, has made the most of the opportunities this has presented him. Paul was keen for the children to embrace their differences and to make the most of their different skills and talents. It was a fantastic visit and very inspiring.
