On Thursday 15th June 2017 we took 8 children to participate in the 'Panthlon Finals' held at Hartpury College. Previously we had taken part in the Panthlon event where we qualified for the finals.
The Panathlon event gives SEN children the opportunity to take part in a range of sporting activities. Some of the games at this event were Table Cricket, Messi Football, New Age Kurling and Precision Beanbag. The event runs in a round robin format and children get to play all sports in their teams. The games are perfectly adapted for all abilities and gives everyone the chance to take part and score points for their team.
Our team was Amy Ellis, Ty Rogers, William Loughrey, Nikodem Szubert, Corey Hale, Samantha Whatcott, Dylan Danter & Ellie Trigg and I have to say I couldn't be more proud of them. They worked incredibly hard and the team spirit they showed was truly inspirational. All the group gave everything a go and showed that their confidence is building in sport and creating friendships with others. In the past 2 events, it has been absolutely fantastic watching the group grow and enjoy playing sport, we really cannot wait for the next event!
I wanted to make a special mention to William Loughrey, William came away with the 'Panthlon Highly Recommended Prize for Outstanding Achievement in 2017'. William has shown that no matter what your circumstances are you can always achieve and excel in what you want, just never give up! Well done William.
