1. A VISIT FROM NIKE & OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALISTS CJ UJAH & ADAM GEMILI!

We were honoured to welcome 4 x 100m runners (& Olympic Gold Medalists), CJ Ujah & Adam Gemili, into the college as part of their campaign with Nike. They sat down with our students for a Q+A, where they gave us the lowdown on what it’s really like to be a Gold Medalist and how they stay motivated even when they’re not collecting medals.

They then went up against our students in our Sports Hall for a mini relay session!
 
2. AN AUDIENCE WITH SIR MATTHEW BOURNE
 
Former Monoux student and world-renowed British choreographer, Matthew Bourne, came back to the college to be interviewed by our students about his amazing journey into dancing from studying at Monoux and how he overcame his critics - It was so inspirational to hear his story live!
