He's our hero, hands Downes!!
Congratulations to Mr Downes, who has been nominated as an Active School Hero for 2019.
An Active School Hero is someone who is inspiring Generation Inactive to become Generation Active. We know active kids work and play better. They also have increased concentration, better school attendance, behaviour, healthier eating habits and are more confident than inactive kids. Active School Hero celebrates the achievements of heroes like Mr Downes working in primary schools across London who are inspiring Generation Active.
In 2019, they will award the Active School Hero award to the person who has done the most to inspire London primary school kids to be Active Kids.
We are sure our Mr Downes will win hands down, but no matter the result, he'll always be a hero to us!
