COMMONWEALTH gold medal winning diver Peter Waterfield has visited a Portsmouth school.

Peter visited The Harbour School in Tipner as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport project.

The free UK secondary schools initiative uses sport stars and sport skills to boost confidence, change behaviours, increase attainment and improve life skills.

The pupils shared the activities they have completed, the skills they have learnt and their accomplishments on and off the playing field.

Peter, of Southampton, said: ‘I came away from The Harbour School feeling incredibly inspired by the commitment of the young people I met.

‘Hearing how the pupils are putting their new skills and lessons they have learned into practice is a fantastic example of how sport has the power to change lives.’
