Dominic Mensah

Heronsgate had two fantastic days at Royal Arsenal and Thamesmead with the exciting visit from Dominic Mensah – a GB Tumbling Athlete from Inspired Through Sport!

This is a video of Dominic at the 2018 British Championships!

Inspired Through Sport are dedicated to supporting British Athletes and inspiring the next generation of sporting heroes! They help GB’s best on their journey to success through a #GIVINGBACK athlete support programme.

The children at Heronsgate had a fantastic time with Dominic who delivered an inspiring assembly and even showed us how he can do a standing back flip on our stage! The children then got to have a session with Dominic where they took part in a exercise activity and learnt about health and fitness! The children enjoyed asking Dominic lots of questions about his sporting journey!

Our radio presenters were also very excited to interview Dominic for our Heronsgate radio station where he answered lots of questions and talked about his aspirations for the future!

Our children and families raised an amazing £1181 across the both school events, which helps Dominic to progress in his sporting career. Heronsgate will also be receiving a large proportion of the sponsorship money to buy new PE equipment for the school! Congratulations to all the children who fundraised!

We hope to welcome more inspiring athletes next year at Heornsgate!
