Wow, what a day we had at the Inspire+ Mini Commonwealth Games at the Grantham Meres last week! The children in Impala and Barasingha along with our Young Sports Ambassadors, were so excited to represent the country of Samoa as they took part in the opening ceremony procession around the track with a flag that had been especially made in school.
We began our day of activities learning a dance that we would go on to perform at the closing ceremony; then tried some athletics; took part in some team building games and had a game of boccia. All before lunch! During the afternoon, we met some special visitors including Paralympic Gold Medalist, Jonathan Broom-Edwards and Elsa. After an energetic netball session, we had a great time trying out some American Football skills with Inspire+ Ambassador, Sam Ruddock!
We all had a brilliant day and our thanks go to everyone at Inspire+!
