Sports History Alive
What People Are Saying About Sport History Alive
Our students were so excited when Mark Heese came to our school with the Sports History Alive presentation! Mark’s presentation was very engaging and he truly inspired our students to get involved and try new and different experiences. He spoke to them about the importance of physical activity and made connections to our Board’s character traits. His presentation really resonated with our students. They gained a greater awareness about the history of Sport in Aurora and the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame and its significance in our community. Mark was very inspirational. Our students were thrilled to take “selfies” with a real “Olympian” and to touch an Olympic medal. Thank you for coming to our school and giving our students an amazing experience!Jane Inglis
Our students were thrilled with the Sport History Alive presentation featuring Mark Heese. Not only was Mark’s presentation identifiable and engaging, his message has truly inspired the kids at Aurora Grove Public School to get active in sports and try something new. The students found it rather interesting to learn a bit about the history of sport in Aurora and to learn about the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame. Of course, it was also pretty cool to meet an Olympian, watch him do a “dig” and to see an actual Olympic medal!
Those in attendance from the Sport History Alive organization were absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing your passion in sport with Aurora Grove!Aurora Grove Public School
