Sir Steve Redgrave has sent St Nicholas Priory school the following inspirational message:
Message for your children:
from Sir Steve
Such a tough time for everyone at the moment, and no less for all of you trying to study during this disruptive time. Try to look at the bigger picture; This is just a moment in time that will pass; being well educated, working hard for your teachers to reach your goals; this is for life. We take it for granted being at school; so many children do not have that advantage.
My suggestion is to try to focus; work hard and then take part in some activity and reset for the next session of concentration. You can and will get through this. Do not use the pandemic as an excuse not to try hard; use it as a tool to work even harder; achieve your dreams – and good luck – I believe in you.
Sir Steve Redgrave (five times Olympic Gold Medalist)
