Inspirational Assembly, May 2018

Today, we met Katharine Lowrie, who, along with her husband, followed her dream and ran the entire length of South America from Chile to Venezuela.  The couple planned the run to raise funds for nature charities and, along the way, they visited many schools to give presentations.  Katharine brought in lots of the kit which the couple needed to help them survive on the long, hard journey.  This equipment was pulled in a trailer behind them as they ran the 5,000 miles from the south to the north of the continent.  Katharine also showed us photographs and films taken on the trip, of the animals they encountered along the way.  It was a really inspirational assembly and we hope to follow it up with some 'distance' maths and 'follow your dreams' project work!
