Clare Mount Organises First UK School Sport Education Games
Inspired by our experience at the Whole School Sport Education Games in Greece last year, Clare Mount has worked with the Youth Sport Trust, Special Olympics GB, The NCSS, The Wenlock Olympian Society, Wheelpower Sports, Stoke Mandeville, William Brookes School and Basketball England to organise the 1st UK School Sport Education Games, 6th - 7th March 2017. Split across 2-days and 2-venues - Stoke Mandeville and Much Wenlock - the event was designed to 'inspire a generation' of young people to spread the word about Unified Play and our rich Olympic, Paralympic and Special Olympic History. Special thanks to our wonderful speakers - Paralympian Kate Grey, Special Olympic athlete Georgina Maton, NCSS Chair Pam Burrage and Chris Cannon from the Wenlock Olympian Society. The event was attened by 40 young people with and without special educational needs from 7 schools including Clare Mount, Bebington, Lord Grey, Slated Row, Arbour Vale, Kenilworth and William Brookes School all of which demonstrated the Olympic/Paralympic values over the range of talks, tours and sporting activities.
