After entering a Sport Wales Cymry Coch competition, Penrhyncoch Primary School received a visit from Paralympian and Commonwealth medallist Jordan Howe and Commonwealth Silver Medallist Kane Charig.
Pupils were given the opportunity to ask questions and be inspired by both athlete’s successes.
Councillor Catrin Miles, Cabinet Member for Leisure said, “Penrhyncoch Primary School pupils have been very lucky to meet and be given the opportunity to be inspired by sporting medallists. These sportsmen have worked hard to be where they are today, and we might have a young future star in our midst.”
After the morning’s visit, pupils were lucky to receive Mini Disability Inclusion Training to increase their knowledge of disability sport and to encourage the importance of inclusive participation in sport during school, play times, home life and at their sports clubs.
“Last year, 327 Year 6 pupils received the training. It’s important that pupils receive this training to understand why it’s so important that everyone can and should be encouraged to take part in sport, regardless of their ability,” said Gemma Cutter, Disability Sport Wales Development Officer, who provided the inclusion training.
Mini Disability Inclusion Training is available to year 6 pupils in Ceredigion Primary Schools to raise their awareness of inclusive and disability sport. Contact email@example.com for more information.
