CLARE MAKES GUEST APPEARANCE
Television and radio presenter Clare Balding was the guest speaker at an event that proved to be interesting and inspiring for pupils at Kirkham Grammar School
Kirkham Grammar School were delighted to be chosen to host a very special event with BBC Sport, Channel 4 and BT Sport presenter turned author, Clare Balding.
The event welcomed 500 children from local primary schools who saw Clare talk about her books, ‘The Racehorse Who Learned to Dance’, ‘The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop’ and ‘The Racehorse Who Disappeared’, share tips for budding writers and answer questions from the audience. Many children had already read Clare’s books which made this a fantastic opportunity and experience to hear from her in person.
It was a truly brilliant, interesting and inspiring event. All the pupils and staff had a wonderful morning and were very excited to be given the opportunity to purchase her books and have it personally signed by Clare, who could ride horses before she could walk and grew up surrounded by racehorses trained by her father.
As a television and radio presenter, Clare has worked on the Olympic Games as well as the Winter Olympics, Paralympics, Commonwealth Games, the Grand National, Royal Ascot, Wimbledon and the Ryder Cup.
