Last Thursday afternoon, the Good Shepherd Taekwondo Club had a very special visitor join them for one of their weekly training sessions. Lauren Burns, gold medallist in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, led a session with both the Senior and Junior members of the Club.
The session included Lauren speaking about her Olympic experiences, her journey in the sport of Taekwondo and her ‘secrets for success’. Students were thrilled to have the opportunity to hold Lauren’s gold medal, her Olympic tracksuit and her Olympic relay torch. After talking with the students, Lauren then led a training session which included a number of demonstrations.
We would like to thank Lauren for making time to visit our School and spend time with the students involved in the Taekwondo Club. All students felt incredibly fortunate to have Lauren at their session and it is something they will remember for many years to come. Thank you very much to Mrs Michelle Messig for her organisation of this special opportunity for our students.
