Sporting legends, Ian Wright & Garth Crooks inspire students at Commonwealth celebratory lunchPosted on: 01/05/2018
On Tuesday 1st May, Capital hosted a wonderful lunch in celebration of the Commonwealth Games. All students who have represented Capital in the football teams this year were invited to attend. They enjoyed a multi-cultural celebratory lunch and a very special visit from sporting legend, Ian Wright MBE. Our Chair of Governors, Garth Crooks OBE helped organise the event and was also in attendance alongside Chris Ampofo from Brent Football and other special guests.
It was a fantastic and inspiring afternoon; with Ian sharing very honestly his journey and reminiscing about the hard work he had to put in and contribution his teachers made along the way. He answered many, many questions from the students and one sixth former said that many celebrities just want to talk about themselves but Ian Wright actually answered all our questions - we are so inspired and impressed!
We would like to thank everyone involved for organising such a memorable event.
