Paul Sturgess ~ The Tallest Basketball Player in the World!


The children at Greyfriars spent a fantastic day with the  ex Harlem Globetrotter Paul Sturgess. Paul led a whole school assembly where he shared his story with us all.

He explained how throughout his life he had experienced people making fun of him and how he overcame this to be a world class basketball player. After spending time with each class, he left us with a very important message; “Be happy with who you are and be happy in your skin. If you work hard you can achieve your dreams and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t!”

Here are some photos of our day!
