Race Leys are Level 3 School Games Champions

11/04/2019

 

The School Games comprises of both Intra and Inter-school competitions leading to County Finals as well as a biennial National Finals event. Their mission is to keep competitive sport at the heart of schools and to provide more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their personal best.

The School Games events consist of four unique types of competition: intra-school competitions, local inter-school competitions, county finals, and the School Games National Finals.

Rob Heath, PE lead for the Trust, took a team from Race Leys Juniors. See what he had to say about the day below:

“Following our success in the Level 2 School Games competition earlier this year, our inclusive (SEND) team travelled to North Solihull Sports Centre on Wednesday 10th April to represent North Warwickshire in the Level 3 School Games Boccia and Archery Finals. Firstly we were treated to an amazing gymnastics display as part of the opening ceremony and listened to an inspirational speech from disability football champion, Charlie Fogarty MBE. We then had 3 hours of competition against schools from all over Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire before sitting down for the presentation and…we won GOLD in Boccia! So Race Leys are Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire School Games Champions for 2018-19!”
