Olympians Challenge Students

Ahead of the Sydney Marathon this Sunday, Olympian marathon and long-distance runners, Sinead Diver and Eloise Wellings visited St George Christian School to encourage students to pursue their dreams and stay active.  

Eloise and Sinead were joined by Sydney Marathon Digital Marketing Manager, James Constantine, in a Q&A session, for our Year 9 and 10 students, grade and recreation students. They encouraged to students to enjoy the journey as they pursue their sporting dreams and to “lean into challenges” as this is often where you grow the most. They talked about what they think about whilst competing, and how positive self-talk gets them through the difficult parts of a run.

After meeting some of the students, our guests crossed the campus to speak to our Junior School students before watching them run laps of the playground. On behalf of the Sydney Marathon, James Constantine gifted our School $1000 dollars for sports equipment.

Our deepest thanks to Sinead Diver, Eloise Wellings and James Constantine for visiting our School
