OLYMPIC gold medallist, Denise Lewis, will be dropping in on Stafford Sports College next week to help students prepare for National School Sports Week 2012.
The visit, which coincides with the Olympic Torch Relay passing through Stafford, was organised by the Stafford and Stone School Sport Partnership and the Youth Sport Trust.
Steve Glover, Partnership Development Manager at Stafford and Stone School Sport Partnership said he was delighted to be able to invite someone "so inspirational" to work with the students.
“We are really thrilled, I’ve met her before and she’s just an excellent person, very down to earth and very humble,” he said.
The visit is set to start at 10am where the former Olympic Heptathlon champion will host a 30-minute assembly talking about her sporting experiences with pupils from Years 7 and 8 before joining 150 youngsters from five local primary schools competing in an athletics competition in the sports hall.
Later Ms Lewis will take part in a street dance session with 70 secondary school-age girls from Girls Active, hold a Q&A with the students on her role as a female athlete and take part in a netball coaching session for 60 Year 6 girls from 15 local Stafford and Stone primary schools.
The event marks the start of National School Sport Week, Britains biggest ever school sports event, which it is hoped will involve 13,000 schools and more than five million young people across the UK.
