It was a busy day at Sefton Park on Monday 22 February. Jack Rutter, Captain of the England Cerebral Palsy Football team, came and helped take children through a series of demanding circuits and gave them an inspirational talk about dealing with setbacks and overcoming hardship.
"He was so positive and encouraging", said one child. "He told us to follow our dreams, never give up and try our best." That fits very nicely with Sefton Park's motto of 'Being and doing our very best'.
From Reception to year 6, all the children took part in the sponsored event, performing star jumps, spotty dogs and leg drives, to raise money for athletes like Jack and to help the school buy new P.E equipment.
"It was a lot of fun", said another child. "We were completely exhausted by the end of the circuit!"
