Sporting Stars of the Future
Students, parents, staff, governors and local sponsors celebrated sporting commitment and achievements at Alderman Peel High School’s annual Celebration of Sport Awards Evening on Thursday 14th March 2019.
During the school day twenty-four selected students were put through their paces in a coaching session from Guest of Honour, Professional Triathlete – Kimberley Morrison and APHS Professional Swimming Coach – Charlotte Long.
The evening commenced with a fantastic tap-dance performance by four sisters – Hazel Harmer, Iris Harmer, Amy Harmer and Eve Harmer before five of the school’s Sports Young Ambassadors took to the stage for a motivating opening address giving particular reference to the theme of ‘Mission Possible’.
Kimberley Morrison then took to the stage and told a packed audience about how she underwent complex heart surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital at the age of 3, before becoming Ironman70.3 Champion in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2016 and becoming the second fastest woman on record over a distance of 100-miles. She also discussed her next future project of taking on the Land’s End to John O’Groats bike ride with the intention of breaking the world record.
All nominees for the evening received a certificate, while winners received a sports badge and prism.
After a short interval the main award winning students were revealed with them receiving a silver salver.
