Friday 16th September sees the launch of an Olympic inspired programme called Be the Best You Can Be! This unique programme has been developed as an educational legacy going beyond sport and far beyond the inspiration of London 2012, to inspire the youth of Britain and the rest of the world. Dr David Hemery, Olympic Champion and founder of the 21st Century Legacy which supports amazing programme, says that everyone has a spark of greatness within themselves, and this programme will motivate and empower the children to achieve their dreams.

The launch will involve Jo Mersh, world indoor Bronze medalist, Olympian and former 1000m record holder, leading an assembly at the school to tell the children her own exciting story and visiting all the classes to answer questions about her journey to success!

Each child will personalise their own Dream Book which will continue throughout the year as part of the Be the Best You Can Be programme, culminating in a celebratory event at the end of the year.

We are delighted to be able to take part in this very exciting initiative!

  1. Ahila (Ashani's mum) says:

    I couldn’t agree more – everyone DOES have a spark of greatness in them. We just need to channel it outwardly in all we do. There is no dream that can’t be reached. As Walt Disney says, ‘If you can dream it, you can do it.’ I can’t wait to hear Jo Mersch speak about the motivation and discipline she tapped into, to become an Olympian! I will definitely use her story for inspiration in my life 🙂

  2. Can’t wait, if I don’t become a footballer, I want to become an Olympian.

  3. I am very excited and grateful to have this opportunity. I’m sure I will learn a lot from this! I hope everyone has a great time too.

  4. I can’t wait I love sports mostly running I wonder what it’s like winning in the olympics!

  5. I thought she was really inspiring for us all , even for those that don’t want to be an athlete she taught us to be determined and to be positive , thank you Jo!

  6. Being the best you can be makes a happier and much more fun community.

  7. Being honest you can be and thoughtful.

  8. Jo Mersh has inspired me a lot .Now, when I grow up, I want to be in the olympics and win a gold medal in swimming.

  9. My plan a is to be a singer and my plan b is to be a Olympic runner

  10. That’s my plan but the other way around ??

  11. Jo really inspired me I want to be a vet because I love animals my second choice is to be fashion designer so two diffrent choices!! ???

  12. Jo inspired me that if I imagine what I really want to be I could reach it eventhough i would have lots of obstacles . When I am older I would like to be a Gymnast for my plan a and for my plan b I want to be a runner. Also if your plan a does not work out you still have another 25 letters in the alphabet to do different plans on .
