Clare Mount pupils and staff represent England

Harry (Year 11), Paul (Year 10), Mr Keefe and Mr White represented Clare Mount and Special Olympics England at the 3rd World School Sport Education Games in Greece from the 22nd to 28th March 2016. The pupils and staff made up a team of 27 representing England alongside similar teams from Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus and France. The event started in Olympia with a stay at the Olympic IOC headquarters. Pupils and staff got to run through the Ancient Olympic site with Olympic Marathon Gold medallist Rosa Mota, before taking part in various running, football and basketball challenges. In between lectures on the Olympic Values the team also stayed in Athens and took part in the Olympic Torch Relay in Marathon and the handover of the Olympic Flame to Brazil in the 1896 Olympic stadium. An amazing, educational experience for all with new friendships made across the World.
