Disabled children from primary schools across Buckinghamshire took part at the Panathlon games held at the ‘home of the Paralympics’ at Stoke Mandeville Stadium last week.
Primary Panathlon for central region schools also took place in the Stoke Mandeville Stadium with seven teams competing.
The victors, from St Peter’s School in Burnham, beat six other schools to take home gold in the ‘Paralympic-style’ games with 54 points.
Head of PE Stephen Garner said: “This has been fantastic. We are a small school and don’t normally get to competitive sporting events. This is the first time we have taken part in a Panathlon, so to take the gold medal is fantastic.”
Reece, 10, said all the activities are amazing, especially the football because he likes to be part of a team.
Students from Arbour Vale School in Slough’s Years 5 and 6 also competed and gained 42 points to take fourth place. Head of PE Kevin Hughes said: “We are all loving the competition; Panathlon is just right for our students and gives support.”
Jake, nine, said he loved the football shoot out, as this is his favourite sport.
South Bucks School Sport Partnership manager, Rachel Hutchinson, who helped organize the games said: “Panathlon is an all-inclusive opportunity for SN students, Out motto is ‘A sporting chance for every child’.”
Other Buckinghamshire schools that took part were heritage House in Chesham and Great Missenden.
Heritage House class teacher, Deidre Jones, took a team made up of five classes with two students from each. “It is good to have different ages and abilities working together. And it has been very useful to a visually-impaired child to experience a large space and lots of people.”
Panathlon offers competitive sport opportunities with adapted games, including boccia, polybat, parachute, table cricket and athletics.
