Pupils and staff at The Lea Primary School in Harpenden were paid a visit by BMX Halfpipe Champion and Former World Master Champion Mike Mullen.
Mike runs BMX Academy, where he shares his personal experience of being a young, not particularly sporty boy who lacked confidence, and how learning to do BMX stunts and enter competitions enabled him to build resilience.
Mike shared this message of positivity in a school assembly, which had headteacher Mr Berry and other members of staff lying on the floor while Mike jumped over them with his BMX.
Mike also hosted workshops for Year 5 and 6 children.
A spokeswoman at the school said: "The pupils came to the workshop with differing abilities, but ultimately each child went home understanding how they could be empowered to embrace challenge in other areas of their life."
