Our school received a visit from two elite athletes this week, Madeline Groves (Olympic swimmer) and Mackenzie Duffy (Australian Champion sprint kayaker). They came to talk to our senior students about their experiences, goal setting, elite sport pathways and to provide inspiration to our athletes. They gave a presentation on their respective sports and also spent time answering a range of questions from the audience. Madeline even brought along her Olympic and Commonwealth Games medals for the students to look at.
Madeline and Mackenzie are both on track to represent Australia at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
