Medal Winner at MPS

On Friday the 4th of May the Year 6 and Room 1 students were lucky enough to meet a real live Commonwealth Games medallist, Mr Jeremy Edwards.

Mr Edwards plays field hockey for Australia and has recently returned from the games in Queensland. He talked to the students about the commitment and dedication required to play at a national level, and the sacrifices made to achieve his dream. Our students asked some really insightful questions and learnt quite a lot about hockey and the Commonwealth Games.


In 2014, Mr Edwards completed his teaching practice with Mrs Dent (Year 6 Teacher) and he has very fond memories of his time at our school. To thank her for her support, Mr Edwards presented Mrs Dent with one of his Commonwealth Games playing shirts, which she can add to her collection, as he had already given her one 3 years ago when he first made it into the Australian team!
