Get Set for Community Action

As we prepare for another fantastic summer of sport, with the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games taking place in Rio, some of our year 9 students have been hard at work promoting the Olympic and Paralympic values. 

Eight year 9 students and two year 12 students have been involved in the Get Set for Community Action initiative, run by the Youth Sport Trust, and have become our Action Leads for the project. 

     Get Set for Community Action uses the power of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire, engage and motivate young people. Our students have linked up with community club Allsorts and Stroud District council to help deliver a Panathlon Challenge event. This enabled SEND students from local schools to engage in a “mini Olympic” multi sport style event. In order to prepare for the day Archway Students undertook a morning of training and have also received additional training sessions on boccia and adapted archery.

     Strong links have now been formed with Allsorts community club and our Action Leads will soon be undertaking some volunteering opportunities with the club.
