British Olympic athlete presents awards to students

Mark Dry, an Olympic and Commonwealth hammer thrower, was the guest speaker at an evening for former Y11 students on Thursday. 

Students who left CNS in the summer of 2016 were welcomed back for the presentation evening. 

Mark gave an inspirational talk giving insight into life behind the scenes as an athlete and had plenty of advice for the students about determination.

Great evening @CNSschool and meeting some unbelievable students! One walking again after spinal chord damage playing rugby. #Trooper

It was a pleasure to welcome back those students who went on to different ventures and recognise the achievements of the many who went into our sixth form.
