Strathmore Infant & Nursery School have an existing partnership with Sports For Champions and are hosting an inspirational workshop with Antonio Infantino.
Strathmore's previous athlete visits have helped the children gain so much and thrive from the visits. Can you help us make it happen?
Strathmore Infant & Nursery School aim to provide an excellent all round education for young children in a well resourced setting, catering for the needs of all their children and supporting their families.
They work in partnership with parents in their role as carers and educators. To further support families, they have on site breakfast and after school clubs, as well as a lunch club for Nursery aged children. Further activities for children and families are planned in conjunction with the Hitchin Partnership of schools, of which the school is a member.
The school premises are bright and spacious, and they constantly strive to update the facilities available to the children.
A three-time English Schools Champion, and Great Britain junior representative, I switched nationality to run for the country of my parents, who were both born in Italy. I have since won two Italian Championship titles, and been a regular in the national team. Recent international appearances include European Team Championships 2017 and 2019, and the European Championships in Amsterdam 2016, where I made the semi-finals of the individual and finished fifth in the relay.
This year I made my first appearance in the individual at the IAAF World Championships and ran personal bests of 10.06 and 20.27, ranking inside the top 50 in the world for both sprints and motivating me more than ever ahead of next year’s Olympic Games.
Who are we?
Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Strathmore Infant & Nursery School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.
Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.
While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!
SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.
During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.
Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.
Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.
Strathmore Infant & Nursery School is receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Antonio Infantino on the 7th of June and we need your support!
The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.
Why is this important?
Strathmore Infant & Nursery School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdowns and with the help of a visit from Antonio Infantino the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.
Strathmore Infant & Nursery School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.
How can you help?
We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Jaydon Paddock and to raise funds for key resources for Strathmore Infant & Nursery School.
If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
