Two members of the Belfast Giants Ice Hockey team visited our P5, P6 & P7 boys and girls. With the help of Gordy Cameron (Schools co-ordinator), they discussed about the importance of eating healthily and getting enough exercise. They also explained what it’s like to be a Belfast Giant, including the daily training regime of a professional athlete and the importance that nutrition plays in their lives.
The visit was also very special for us because Mr Thornton who is the Head Coach of the Belfast Giants, is also a dad of three girls Alana, Emmy & Georgia who go to HPS! They were very pleased to be able to join the other boys and girls for the afternoon. There was also time to to take a few photographs too!
Special thanks to Mr Thornton and Gordy. They have arranged for our children to go to watch a Belfast Giants match later this season. How generous!! Look back soon for further details.
