CATHY FREEMAN

"Growing up I had the opportunity to experience quality educational opportunities and the support to go with it. By going to school, I was able to recognise my potential as an athlete and fulfil my dream of achieving Olympic gold.

 

Attending school opens up opportunities to learn, experience life and allows children to explore their talents. I believe education is the key to a positive pathway.”
