COMMONWEALTH gold medallist gymnast Steve Frew visited Cardinal Newman High, Bellshill, in his role as Athlete Mentor for Sky Sports Living for Sport.
S3 pupils selected by Cardinal Newman to participate in the initiative had the opportunity to show Steve the activities they have been involved in.
Steve then took the class through his own experiences of overcoming difficulty to excel in gymnastics before explaining how sport can help young people grow in other areas of their lives.
Steve said: “I hope that, by sharing my life story and the influences sport has had on me as a person, I can help these pupils see how lessons learnt from taking part can help them fulfil their full potential.”
