GREAT Britain wheelchair rugby captain for 2012, Steve Brown, has delivered an inspiration talk to school pupils.

He attended Worthing High School in South Farm Road, Worthing, on Friday, when he spoke in the year nine and ten assembly about his life so far.

For the reminder of the day Steve worked with 22 year-ten students on a Sky Living project to improve self-confidence, participation and self-esteem through physical activity.

Marie Field, leader of PE at the school, said: “The day was incredible, students were motivated and inspired throughout. Steve is an excellent role model for all our students.

“Projects and programmes like these are invaluable to help young people develop important life skills that will help them in and outside of school, now and in the future.”

This is the third year Worthing High School has been supported by the Sky Living project. In previous years, Olympic diver Pete Waterfield and Thinus Delport, a South African ex-rugby union player who played for Worcester Warriers and South Africa, have visited.

Head teacher Carolyn Dickinson said: “The Sky Living project has brought inspirational sports personalities into our school and by sharing their experiences they have been able to support the development of our students. We are looking forward to working with Steve over the next 12 months.”
