Barbara Kendall - Olympic Ambassador

By Andrew Hunter | Posted: Wednesday July 22, 2015

We were very privileged to host Olympic legend Barbara Kendall at Balmacewen.

Olympic Ambassador Barbara Kendall visited Balmacewen recently. She spoke with her famous passion and enthusiasm about her Olympic experience as well as plenty of motivating stories of how to become the best you can be. Hard work and perseverance were definite themes in her 30 minute talk which included some spectacular footage of her as an athlete as well as a motivational Olympic video. 

Her talk related perfectly to our Term 2 Fair Play Cup presentation. The lucky recipients were treated to wearing Barbara's gold, silver and bronze medals. Congratulations to winner George Bates and to runners up, Dana Ballantyne and Eli Ellison. Your awards were very well deserved.
