Christine Ohuruogu visits Westfield!

Christine’s visit was to present the school with their certificate for winning the Primary Category in the Internet Matters Song Competition for Schools.

Christine talked to the children about the impact of cyber-bullying and using the internet safely. Following a very inspirational assembly, during which children sang their award winning song, Christine spent time in some of the classrooms, talking to children about her amazing sporting journey.  The children were very excited to meet Christine and they had so many perceptive questions.

Pupil at the school Tristan Ng, Year 3, asked Christine how fast she could run.  As Christine didn’t know the answer Tristan calculated the speed using her World Champion 400m time and proudly presented his findings to Christine. She was amazed to find out she could run 8.1m per second.  She even kept his calculations to show her coach!

Year 5 pupil, Max Leeton, asked Christina how often she needed to have new trainers.  To his amazement she replied she has a new pair at least every month but has a different pair for each type of activity.

Rachel Huggins from Internet Matters accompanied Christine during her visit and commented “Bourne Westfield’s entry into our competition tackles the issue of cyber-bullying in an insightful way – involving the whole school.  It was fantastic to hear children sing it live and pass on the message of being respectful to others online.”

Christine added “Bourne Westfield is a lovely school and all the children were so well mannered.  I had a really lovely time and was so well looked after.”
