Welcome Back to School Games Festival 15/10
Primary school children from across Leicester City have had a fantastic time at this weeks Welcome Back to School Games Festival! Inspire events like these encourage children with less confidence, special educational needs or a disengagement with sport to take part in a variety of physical activity.
The teachers who brought their pupils were particularly impressed with how these children, who normally aren’t as engaged with sport as their other pupils, thoroughly enjoyed getting involved. One teacher exclaimed “thank you for allowing our school to take part in this Multi-skill event. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and as a teacher, I can see how our children have grown in confidence as the afternoon has gone on”.
We can't wait to run more events like these across the year!
