Andy Grant who was a Royal Marine Commando and had served in Iraq and Afghanistan for nearly seven years before being medically discharged, kindly visited our school yesterday and gave such an inspirational talk to all the children on subjects such as doing your best, challenges, team spirit, friendship, historical events and disability.Andy says that he lives each day like it is his last and certainly has got back the quality of life that he desired. He has been selected for the GB paratriathalon talent squad, can run 10K in 40 minutes – 2 minutes off the world record for a single leg amputee, has abseiled Europe’s tallest building, won gold medals in the Invictus Games 2014 and learnt to ski and surf. Andy hopes to break a number of world records and has his eyes set on a few firsts for an amputee. It was a privilege to hear him speak about his life and I am sure we will be seeing him again in the near future!
