Ice hockey champ visits KHS

By Staff reporter in Ice Hockey

King Henry VIII School welcomed Great Britain ice hockey player Scott Turner to the school recently.

Turner is a bronze medallist from the Japan World Para Ice Hockey Championship and his team came third in the Ice Hockey World Cup.

Turner showcases wheelchair sports skills and was happy to spend time with some Year Eight girls with the aim of encouraging more awareness and participation in disability sports as he heads towards a future in coaching.

Rhian Brown-Morris and six of her peers had an hour of wheelchair skills development for their PE session.

Rhian enjoys all PE lessons and has been loaned a sports chair for the past two years from Monmouth disabilities sports officer Mark Foster who loaned six more chairs for this event.

The girls had an excellent experience and will take their new skills forward with them to enhance their own performances and awareness for the future.

Organiser Mrs T Mellor said, “This was a wonderful day for all the pupils involved. I would like to say a big thank you to Scott Turner for giving us his time and experience”.
