What a result!
Five Chipping youngsters scored the goal of a lifetime when they met football legend David Beckham and Paralympic hero Ellie Simmonds.
The pupils at St Mary’s Catholic primary in Chipping won an all-expenses-paid trip to London in the Sainsbury’s Active Kids award scheme, which encourages kids to lead healthier, more active lifestyles.
Before the summer holidays and with the whole school, the five youngsters- Lily Hutchings, Shannon Rich, Amelia Faraday, Lauren Cookson and James McCormick - had taken part in a six-week challenge of physical and academic based activities, all based on living a healthy and active life.
The award was the result of their efforts, and the five got to spend the night in a hotel after having a tour of the city.
The next day, they went to Lee Valley - an athletics centre for the London 2012 Olympics - where they met former Manchester United and England star Beckham and Paralympic medallist swimmer Simmonds.
Both of the sports stars are ambassadors for Sainsbury’s Active Kids scheme.
With about 30 other organisations and schools from around Britain, the Chipping group with teachers Anne Timbrell and Suzanne Kelly, took part in a range of skills and challenges with David and Ellie joining in.
New headteacher Mary Morris said she was “very proud” of the conduct of the children, and pledged to continue all the hard work achieved at the school.
