THE Chairman of British Rowing paid a visit to students at Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School recently.
Mark Davies has a strong rowing pedigree and has been involved in the sport since learning to row at Christ’s College, Cambridge. He coxed in two reserve Boat Races, represented England at the Home International Regatta and was a finalist at Henley Royal Regatta.
The Boteler students who participate in the Oarsome Project met with Mark and had the opportunity to ask him questions. They told him of how this project has inspired and motivated them.
Head of Year 7 Kerry Hayes, who assist in coaching the students, said: “The project has been massive for our students and has exposed them to opportunities that they never thought possible.”
The project was created to provide funding and opportunities to schools and clubs that wanted to develop rowing teams and enable their students to try it out.
