Iris (Year Six) has presented a specially signed photograph for Moreton Hall by Belgian tennis superstar, Kim Clijsters, to Mrs McDonald in Moreton First.
Kim was hosting a shipping business awards event in Antwerp, Belgium in November (the IBJ Awards) which is owned and organised by Iris’ parents, when she was asked to sign the photo especially for Moreton girls. Kim is from the Flanders region of Belgium and lives close to Antwerp.
A former world number one in both singles and doubles, Kim won four Grand Slam singles titles: three at the US Open and one at the Australian Open. In doubles, she won the French Open and Wimbledon titles and she was part of the Belgium Fed Cup winning team.
Kim told Iris’ mum, Lena, to pass on a message to all those playing tennis at Moreton. She said, “Keep working hard and having fun.”
