School Games Panathlon 2019-20

On Wednesday 13 November, the first event of the 2019/2020 School Games was held at Marlborough College... the Panathlon!

3 Schools attended and competed in a range of fun challenges including Boccia, long jump, curling and skittles. All activities were inclusive and adapted so all abilities could participate. For example, the use of ramps in activities such as curling and skittles meant that competitors in wheelchairs were able to compete. Tristan from St Nicholas school said his favorite game was the ‘Harlem Hoops’, where he was challenged to score a goal from a range of distances.

Each activity was run by leaders from Marlborough College, who regularly volunteer at Brimble Hill School. They were great motivators and arrived early at the event to assist in setting up and to learn the rules of the activities they were responsible for running.
