What better way to close off the year other than a surprise zoom call from NBA Basketball legend LeBron James! 
 
The fun-filled day started with a trip to Leicester Square, where our Year 7 students joined Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny for the launch of Space Jam: A New Legacy and the unveiling of a bronze Bugs Bunny statue.
 
The excitement continued upon returning to school, where students were ushered into the auditorium for what they thought was another activity session, however, they were in for a HUGE treat! 
 
A surprise video call from LeBron James was brewing on the side-lines. Once students had contained their excitement, Lebron had a truly motivational conversation with them. 
 
He spoke about other basketball legends such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan; his drive for success and how he strives for inspiring the youth of today. Just as we thought the day couldn’t get any better, LeBron generously gifted our students with premiere movie tickets for his new movie - Space Jam.  
 
Students certainly departed feeling inspired and thriving with excitement from such a deeply memorable experience! We thank all those involved in the organisation of this event and for putting a huge smile on our students faces after such a challenging year.
