On Saturday 11th May 2019, the Mintridge team made their way to the beautiful grounds of Warminster School alongside our partners at Squadkit to join the annual sports awards with our very own Ambassador, Heather Fell.
The sun was very much on our side which allowed the sixth form’s drink reception to take place outside before returning indoors for the main event. Heather and the Mintridge team were quick to find the photobooth – what a brilliant addition!
Following an introduction from Mr Watts and an overview of Warminster’s year in sport, dinner was served. There was a great energy in the room as the highly anticipated awards were soon coming up.
Heather presented the awards across an array of sports before taking to the stage for her own story. Heather highlighted her sporting journey from her school days in the swimming pool to the podium at the Beijing Olympics to now as a presenter on the GTN YouTube Channel. A recurring theme throughout was “What can I control?” which echoes the Warminster Sports Department’s values of creating a whole athlete. It was great for the students to hear the challenging and changes along the pathway to success.
Some of the top awards remained before the evening drew to a close. Many came for autographs and photos with Heather and enjoyed seeing (and wearing in a lot of cases) an Olympic Silver Medal for themselves.
Thank you very much to Squadkit and Warminster for the kind invitation to join you and we look forward to working with everyone again soon.
Go well to all of the students embarking on exams and we look forward to following the sporting fixture results for the rest of the term.
