Earlier this year we were very lucky to have K1 Olympic Gold Medallist Joe Clarke visit us here at UAK.
Joe came in to talk to us about his experience at Rio and his dedication to his sport.
Joe showed off his medal and even passed it around for pupils to touch and wear.
Joe talked about how hard he has worked to get to the Olympics and encouraged pupils to have big aspirations and always work hard towards their dreams.
Mrs Castrey commented: “Joe created a real buzz around school and the pupils were in awe of him. Joe was a natural with the pupils and was really down to earth.
It was a real honour to have Joe speak to us and UAK wish him all the best on his road to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.”
