During the very first assembly of this year, the students of IHS had the opportunity to meet two of the best freestyle kayaking champions in the world. The duo, James and Katya, from the UK and Russia respectively, explained with the help of videos and images what kayaking and especially free style kayaking is. They also shared their own personal journey of discovering, falling in love with and excelling at freestyle kayaking. While ​James was the world champion in 2011, Katya is now ranked 5th in the world. This assembly impressed upon the children the message that working hard and being committed and dedicated will always yield results.
