Sir Mo Farah
We were so proud to see one of our students – Sir Mo Farah – collect his knighthood at the Palace earlier this week. We have wonderful memories of Sir Mo visiting us in the autumn of 2012 and showing off his incredible olympic gold medals! Sir Mo has always spoken with great fondness and admiration of his time at Feltham Community College, as we were then known. His talent and incredible commitment were picked up by his teachers and with their support he was able to go and realise his dream of being a world class athlete.
“Over the years you dream of becoming something or doing something in your career, to take it to the highest level and become an Olympic champion – that was always the dream,” Sir Mo said. “As an eight-year-old coming from Somalia and not speaking a word of English, to be recognised by your country, it is incredible.” Sir Mo Farah
Who knows? Perhaps we have another Mo in the making right now at Springwest?
Congratulations to Sir Mo!
