Miss Summers has recently joined us in 4 Milhazes as she completes the final placement of her Teaching degree with us at Bridgewater. Not only is Miss Summers being kept busy with teacher training, but she also swims eight times a week! That's because she is a Paralympic Swimming champion, and is currently training for Paris 2024.
Miss Summers won 2 gold medals at the Tokyo Paralympics and is also the world record holder for the SM6 200m Individual Medley.
Miss Summers kindly spoke to the children in 4 Milhazes about her career as a Paralympian, and not only did she show them some of her collection of medals, but they were also allowed to hold them. The children also had the opportunity to ask Miss Summers about her career and what it takes to become a Paralympic champion. We found the talk very inspiring and we were reminded to show resilience in not giving up on our goals and ambitions.
