Olympic legend inspires pupils in Great Kingshill
FIVE times Olympic Gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave presented awards to pupils at a school in Great Kingshill.
He spoke at the Pipers Corner School's annual prize giving ceremony on Saturday afternoon.
During his address, Sir Steve, spoke to the girls about the importance of passion, commitment and desire and how all these things, along with a hard work ethic, are essential to achieving goals in life.
Reflecting on his own career and accomplishments, he spoke about how talent alone is not enough and what you get out of life depends on how much you put in to it.
Head Girl, Rachel Hawthorne marked the end of her year in the role, by giving a speech at the ceremony, during which she looked back on her time at school.
At the end of the ceremony the Head Girl for 2012/13 was announced as Annabel Hobden, who along with her deputies, Brooklyn Thirkettle and Ellen Hitchman will lead the team of senior prefects next year.
Headmistress, Helen Ness-Gifford, said: "In Olympic year it was a real privilege to have Sir Steve Redgrave join us for this wonderful and memorable occasion. I hope that the girls who were here today take his words to heart and recognise that if they put in the amount of dedication shown by Sir Steve throughout his career, they too will be successful in whatever paths they choose to take."
