Yesterday we welcomed past pupil and world rowing champion, Holly Nixon to Devenish College.
During a special Assembly, Holly spoke to our students about her experiences and achievements; she was also asked questions by a group of our Year 8 students. Holly had a simple message for our students “Take the chances which come your way as you never know where they can lead you”.
After signing autographs and speaking with some of our own sporting stars, Holly spent time with the Year 12 GCSE Physical Education class and even helped them out with their coursework!
Holly presented the school with a framed Great Britain Rowing Top which will take pride of place in our Foye and serve as a reminder to us all of what can be achieved if you work hard and aim high.
Holly heads back to London to begin preparing for the new season. We are so thankful to Holly for taking the time during her final morning at home and visiting us in Devenish College. Her achievements are such an inspiration and we wish her every success for the future.
