Every year, pupils from across Shropshire, including Bomere Heath, attend the School Games, where they compete in a range of sports and challenges.
The event has been cancelled this year, but we are pleased to say that the organisers (Energize Shropshire) have arranged a “Virtual School Games”!
Here is some more information:
- #VirtualSTWSchoolGames is a competition for any primary school age children across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin
- In the six weeks from week beginning 18th May to 22nd June, six sport-specific personal best challenges will be released, one each week
- Energize are looking for children to enter by sending videos and photos of them undertaking the challenges (all with parental / carer consent)
- Along with the sport-specific personal best challenges they are also looking for talented acts for our virtual opening ceremony and are inviting children to send videos of them performing their talents.
- The week beginning 29th June will be Shropshire Homes Virtual School Games Celebration Week and they will kick it off with the ‘virtual’ warm up and opening School Games has Got Talent acts
- They will review all entries that week and announce winners for each challenge on Friday 3rd July
This is a great opportunity for children across the County to get active, have fun and get recognition with participation certificates, and winners’ medals, wrist bands and t-shirts.
So, look out for the weekly challenge and get involved!
