Southend-on-Sea’s Sports Awards 2012

Double Success for Jo-Jo at the Southend-on-Seas Sports Awards 2012. The ceremony took place at Garons Leisure and Tennis Centre, in Southend, Essex on Thursday 25th October 2012


Jo-Jo was named Southend-on-Sea’s


Paralympic Hopeful & Sports Personality of the Year 2012


Jo-Jo comes from Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex and does most of her swimming training with Loughborough Uni Elite Swimming Squad whilst at University and Rochford & District Swimming Club when she is home. Without her swimming coach Doug Drake from Rochford & District and all the Coaches at Loughborough Jo-Jo could not have achieved what she has done so far. So a BIG thank you goes to all her Coaches (Keep up the good work)

 I was delighted that Jo-Jo was able to be a mystery guest at our first ever Aspiration day here at Trinity Road Primary. Jo-Jo was fun, inspiring, confident and nurturing when talking to my pupils. She made us laugh and think about our goals for the future.  It was lovely to have such an ambitious and determined young lady at our school as a positive (and incredibly trendy) role model! Thank you, we are all routing for you for Rio 2016, we will remember your motto * Never give up!”

Aspirations day at Trinity Road Primary School 17th October 2012

Head Teacher’s Message

On Wednesday we held our first ever Aspirations Day –

It was amazing! We had over 15 visiting experts including actresses, police officers, midwives, explorers, author’s, astronomers, engineers and remote control vehicle builders. Our children met many of these willing volunteers who gave up their time to spend a day inspiring our children. We also had a mystery guest: – Jo-Jo Cranfield is a paralympic hopeful for Rio 2016. She is the current British record holder for s9 1500m freestyle Jo-Jo spoke openly with the children about the challenges she has faced but left us with her motto – “Never give up”
