Another fantastic day at Sportspark. The Primary Panathlon was run by The Panathlon Challenge, a national charity which delivers sporting opportunities for children with a special education need or disability (SEND). Children from mainstream primary schools were invited to represent their school sports partnership at the event and it was great to see so many smiling faces throughout the event.
This year, we had 2 separate competitions split across the day with 62 children competing in a morning event from 8 schools and 61 children in the afternoon from 7 schools. The event ran as a carousel of activities which the teams rotated around and collected points for their team. Some of the activities included basketball, boccia, curling, precision bean bag, messy football and skittles.
The teams were supported by leaders from Diss High School all of whom were brilliant. A huge thank you to them for helping the event today.
It was a very close finish but after all points were collected and counted, the results were as follows:
1st– Toftwood 50 points
2nd– Hillside 49 points
3rd– Mattishall 43 points
4th– Nelson Academy 39 points

A big well done to all teams who took part today. There was so much encouragement from all the children not only for their individual team but for others as well. We’d like to thank the deliverers from The Panathlon Challenge who ran the event today and ensured all competitors had great fun. Photos from this event can be found here.
