Andrei Burton, a world-class trials-biker, visited our school today to provide our children with a heart-pumping performance. We watched as Andrei did things on his bike that defied gravity and left us all amazed by what he was doing. To top off his performance, he invited an unsuspecting Mr Hankin to the front. He got a real close-up view as Andrei jumped his bike over him several times! Check out this video…

 

While Andrei was performing, he talked about the importance of practicing and being resilient. His message to the children was keep doing what you love and eventually you will master it like he had.

Check out the photos below – don’t miss the special slow-motion video of Andrei jumping over Mr Hankin!

Thanks for coming Andrei!
