Tuesday 20th June 2017
9.30am – 2.20pm at Wilberforce Road Athletics Track
This annual event is now well and truly our ‘Olympic Event’ as we aim to encourage, inspire and motivate children to take part in a range of new and different sports and activities whilst raising awareness of the Olympic and Paralympic values and our Spirit of the Games Values.
This is now the 14th year we have been running the event and we are sure that this year is going to be the biggest and best to date with 44 primary schools and a massive 1400+ children taking part.
The event is delivered on the day by 120 sports leaders from across the Partnerships secondary schools. There are a wide range of Olympic and Paralympic themed activities for the children to have a go at; including shot putt, javelin, tug of war, hurdles, hockey, tennis, boccia, and long jump to name a few. There are opening and closing ceremonies led by the Partnerships Young Ambassadors with dance performances and a parade around the track by all of the children.
