Holly Robinson

Today we were lucky enough to have Holly Robinson, a New Zealand Paralympian who won silver in Rio, come and speak to us about her journey to the Paralympics. We got to see and hear her medal and we wish her all the best on her quest for gold in the 2020 games!

    It is Jessie here. I thought that having the Paralympian come to talk to us was very inspiring to many children and I am considering taking up a sport again. I think that you could improve on maybe putting in more detail on the event.

  3. Kia ora Totara 1. It is Jessica here. I thought it was really cool to be able to talk to a Paralympic come and talk to us about what she dose when she goes to The Paralympics and how long she has been doing it for. I Think you could improve by telling us A bit more about her Event. Heoi ano taku mo naianei (That's all for now)
