In today’s morning assembly we talked about the Paralympics and our school value of Resilience.
The official Paralympic values of Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality are very similar to our own values here at LMPS.
KS2 watched a video about Ibrahim Hamato, an amazing table tennis player from Egypt who didn’t let a terrible accident stop him playing the game he loved so much. He serves with his feet and holds the bat in his mouth! This year he is living out his dream of playing in Rio. In a recent interview he said…
“I feel really happy…now my dream has come true of playing in the Paralympic Games. I want to tell everybody that nothing is impossible, and everybody should work hard for what you love and what you think is good for yourself. The disability is not in arms or legs, the disability is to not persevere in whatever you would like to do.”
Here’s the video. What lesson do you think can we learn from Ibrahim Hamato?
