2021 Virtual Spring School Games

Welcome to the West of England Spring School Games Virtual Challenge hosted by our Young Leaders from Ashton Park School!

The virtual challenge was developed in association with your School Game Organisers (SGO) and is an activity that you can do in your home or at school.  It gives you the chance to reflect on what you like, or the personal skills needed when taking part in sport and physical activity, or even how you have adapted and overcome the past 12months during the pandemic to keep you and your family active!

You will be taking part with other children across B&NES, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset and it's a chance to show us your personal best!

Our Young Leaders will demonstrate the challenge and let you know the guidelines.  All you need to do is get creative!  Your school will choose a winner to send in to their SGO by 6.00pm on Friday 14th May.  Each SGO will judge their area winner to submit to Wesport's judging panel!   Click here for your SGO's entry email.

The creative design challenge will be open for 4 weeks and you will be able to download your own Spirit of the Games certificate for taking part.  We are always looking for the School Game values to be a part of your learning in all that you do!  These are; Passion, Determination, Self-belief, Respect, Honesty and Teamwork.  What would your new spirit of the games value look like?!

Please see our T+C's below and event overview document  for full details and entry process.  We would love to see any of your schools creative process for this challenge either in the classroom or out on the playground!  Tag us on Social Media @WesportAP #WesportVirtualGames to be entered into our prize draw!
