The Olympics and Paralympics were so inspiring! Talking to children and adults, everyone has enjoyed them (although no doubt sadly some have not!).
Following on from the Games I have three key hopes for our children, that they will:
- have an increased understanding of what it is to truly commit to something and to persevere beyond challenges, to be the very best they can be in any given situation
- focus on what people can do rather than disability
- remember the atmosphere during this summer, the hope, excitement, passion and pride people had and that this would energize them to have an inclusive and positive approach to life in the future
At school level we are reflecting on how we wish PE/sport to move forward and potential opportunities for our students to join in activities with local special schools.
