Higher Openshaw Community School get a surprise visit

March 21st 2016

CBBC Newsround presenter Ricky Boleto joined the school for a day of Sport Relief fun.

Students from Higher Openshaw Community School were very excited to welcome Ricky to their school on Friday 18th March. The school were the winners of our Sport Relief schools competition and were treated to a visit from the CBBC star.

Ricky fired the starting gun that officially marked the school’s Sport Relief events underway. Donning his deely-boppers, he joined the Key Stage Two pupils for a special mile, where students dressed as sporting heroes. Later during a school assembly, interviewers from the School Council asked Ricky about his career at CBBC.

Jennifer Airey, a teacher at the school, said ‘I can’t believe Ricky has come to our school to celebrate Sport Relief with us! We have had an amazing day and we hope we have raised lots of money for Sport Relief.’

Higher Openshaw Community School were not alone in their efforts on Friday, Schools from all across the UK put on miles, Try-athlons and some epic challenges. Did you do something in your school? Send us your stories, we'd love to here them.
