Panathlon Multi Sports Event

South Norfolk School Sports Partnership in partnership with Panathlon Challenge has run two sports events for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) this term.

Panathlon is a national charity which gives thousands of young people with SEND the opportunity to take part in competitive sport.

Both of this term’s events were hosted at Framingham Earl High School and supported by an excellent group of sports leaders from the Diss High School who did an amazing job in organising and delivering all the activities as well as encouraging the children as they took part in the different challenges.

6 Primary schools took part in the Panathlon Multi Skills event with teams of 6-8 children participating in a carousel of inclusive activities including boccia blast, new age kurling, basketball, precision beanbag and skittles. At each activity children had the opportunity to gain points for their school.

Congratulations to Tacolneston Primary School who managed to accumulate the highest score across the 8 activities and were presented with the gold medals.

Other primary schools taking part included Morley Primary, Garboldisham Primary, Ellingham Primary, Dickleburgh Primary Academy and Harleston Sancroft Academy who finished as runners up.

Before the primary event in the afternoon five teams from 4 secondary schools including Framingham Earl, Harleston Sancroft Academy, Long Stratton and Hobart took part in a KS3 Panathlon Challenge Xtend competition with pupils again taking part in teams of 6-8 and working together to score points for their team in sports such as athletics, boccia, new age kurling and cricket.

Congratulations to the team from Long Stratton who narrowly beat Hobart.

“It was great to host today’s events. It is always so nice to see the smiles on the children’s faces as they take part in the activities. Events like this are about developing new skills, forming new friendships, boosting confidence, and most importantly having fun.
