World's Fastest Blind Man Joins Pupils for Prize Day

King’s Hall pupils were delighted to welcome to the school the “fastest blind man in the world” Steve Cunningham for their recent Prize Day celebrations.

Motivational speaker Steve has been described as the “most inspirational man alive.” He takes audiences on his journey from despair to success, inspiring them to break their own barriers and achieve their ambitions.

Witty, entertaining and refreshingly candid, Steve moved the children with his many tales and experiences. Seeing no disability in his total lack of sight, he spoke to the pupils about overcoming their obstacles and finding posititives in the everday.

Following his speech, Steve presented the pupils with a series of awards that recognised and celebrated their hard work and achievements over the past year.

Congratulations to the following pupils who all achieved special awards: Terrence Chen, Tom Wrobel, Oliver Bell, Kaspar Lloyd, Ross David, Harrie Richardson, Tilly Fuller, Peyton Broke-Smith, Nigel Hau, Elsa Clayton, Olivia Stanbury, Edward Luxton, Isabella Lawford, Charlotte Ambler, Arjun Ashok, Robert McSwiggan, Daisy Thompson, Bella Salmons, Harry Cartwright, Molly Landau, Cameron Wallace and Harrie Richardson.

In addition to the academic awards, Sports Players of the Year prizes were awarded to Eve Rowe (Junior Girl), Matthew Candfield (Junior Boy), Jemima Rundell (Senior Girl), Rufus Williams-Pritchard (Senior Boy) and Josh Thomas (Senior Boy).

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a special Prizegiving Concert, which included a rendition of Moon River by Isabella Lawford and Julia Louw, and a special performance of I Hear Music in Me by the Senior Choir.

Looking ahead to September, we are also delighted to announce that Elise Roberts and Oscar Benneyworth will undertake the role of Deputy Head Boy and Girl respectively, while Harry Besley and Alice Eakhurst will become Deputy Head Boy and Girl.
