From how well he did in school to the size of his swimming pool, curious Chadwell Heath primary school quizzed Leyton Orient FC owner Kent Teague.
The Texan multi-millionaire visited the grounds of the Atam Academy, in Barley Lane, Little Heath, on Friday, October 12.
Two trainers from the club led the school children in a series of football drills and activities before around 100 Year 1 and 2s gathered to ask Mr Teague their burning questions.
Academy director Tasveer Singh said: “One question asked was ‘Why do you think you are important?’”
“He said, among other things, ‘because I feel I have been able to give back to society – it is not all about money,’”
Tasveer said that Mr Teague’s message was in keeping with the school’s ethos that perseverance and hard-work will lead to success.
The Atam Academy has partnered with the Leyton Orient Trust, a charity which provides coaching and classes to schools across east London.
